A blessed Eastertide to you all! I spent much of the afternoon yesterday watching various musical offerings from friends and relatives all over the world. I don’t think I’ve ever felt so connected to the larger church, yet at a time when I feel the pain of being distanced from my local church family. I hope the virtual music, art, and worship experiences available have been meaningful and helpful to you in this time. I have noticed, however, that taking in all of these experiences passively is very different from entering in actively.

So, for Music Monday, I encourage you to find some music that you can’t help but sing along to, and lift that song up to the Lord. Dig out an old album or search out a favorite on the internet and belt it out wherever you are. I’d love to hear what music inspires you. Here’s a piece from one of my favorite albums growing up. Easter Song sung by the group Glad on their album The Acapella Project.
