Music Ministry

 

 

Music Ministries at Corinth

 

 

I have often heard the saying, “To sing is to pray twice.” The author is unknown, some say it is attributed to Augustine, according to an article by Fenoglio. Singing is another way to worship God; another way we can relate to God and understand at a deeper level what goes beyond words. Another sentiment is “God gave us music that we might pray without words.” Christianity is not only a personal, heart to heart experience with God, but is to be celebrated and shared and prayed for and with people near and far and all over the world. Singing together lets us feel God’s presence together and that is a joyful thing.

 

Over the holidays I experienced a joyous Epiphany celebration at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, complete with large camel and three Kings. A ukulele group that I am participating in played the accompaniment music for the service, the theme being The Light of God. I hope that we could some time this year have some of these ukulele players participate at Corinth. Our next Ukulele Session will be February 18, immediately after the 11:00 a.m. worship service. All types of string instruments are welcome to join. Our Ukulele Sessions are open to 5th graders and up.

 

Keep on singing and join with us to learn to play the ukulele.

 

“The Lord is my light and my salvation;  whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life: of whom shall I be afraid?” Psalm 27:1
