I spent some time with a couple of good friends this morning in the chapel at CTS. We got started shortly after 9 and finished up at a quarter to twelve. We rehearsed and recorded six of my original tunes and one arrangement I’d written while at my previous church. All three of us had a great time (even though I’m a little bit hoarse from the sinus gunk that’s been going around lately).
It was an extremely encouraging way to spend a morning, indeed a privilege, to worship God with our skills and our instruments as we recorded songs which ranged from heart cries (Psalm 88) to celebrations of God’s mercy (“The Holy Ghost Must Give the Wound”) to songs about the risen Christ (“I Know that My Redeemer Lives”).
