In Harmony

If you know me, this will come as no surprise. I love to sing! Now, I know I am not the greatest person you will ever hear perform, but I love to sing because I know that I am singing to my Savior.

My favorite part of singing is blending the harmony parts. I sing alto (or tenor when needed!) and I love to mix and mingle, getting the parts just right. I believe that when we sing in harmony, there is more enjoyment for the listener. The more harmony, the more levels of entertainment there are to be enjoyed.

With that in mind, I have a prayer for our church and the church as a whole... I pray that we can learn to harmonize. I believe that no one voice should be heard above the others. Each voice, special and unique as it is, should learn to blend in harmony with the voices around it so the listener (Our Heavenly Father) will be pleased and will gain the most enjoyment possible from the song that he hears.

So, like Charlie Brown, it is time that we learn the true meaning of Christmas... Christ was born for ALL of us, not a select few. Christ died for ALL of us, not a select few. The gift he gave is for ALL of us... accepting the gift isn't the last is the first step. The rest... well it's all about harmony and learning to sing for our audience of One.
