Singing Love Songs to God

Psalm 96 from the Jewish Scriptures invites human beings to “Sing to the Lord a new song.” It further says, “Sing to the Lord all the Earth.” The Earth is surely singing now in springtime. The frogs are calling in the night. The geese are sounding in the day. And human hearts are full of song as well. At the 9 a.m. service we will sing songs together. At the 11 a.m. service, wonderful jazz and blues singer Paula Jones and her band will sing such songs as “All of Me” with the understanding that many of the famous jazz and blues songs we know can easily be sung as praise songs for the mystery that makes us.
