Daily Scripture

1 Sing to the Lord a new song;

sing to the Lord, all the earth.

2 Sing to the Lord and bless his name;

tell out his salvation from day to day.  (Psalm 96:1-2)

Daily Reflection

Singing, the thing we long for now, perhaps more than ever! It is not until something is taken away from us, or temporarily suspended in this case, that we really understand what it means to us, how much we love it and how necessary it is.

Singing, whether in the shower, on stage or in church, brings us alive. We feel our spirit soar and our mood lift and we can feel united, both with others and with something higher, which some of us will name as the Lord.

Soon we shall surely once again be allowed to sing together with others, and not just on a screen, but for real, with real people. Never again will we take this wonderful experience and expression of the human spirit for granted, having glimpsed a world without it.
