The Impact of Music (in the "Sacred" realm) Past and Present

Rev. Staton when I read your post. It made me pause, because I cannot imagine church without music, it is such an intregal part of how we worship God. The Psalms were songs that were sung in the temple. I also feel that christian music can add to our spiritual growth. I cannot count the times that a gospel song has lifted me from the bowels of dispair. So many songs paint such a visual picture of Jesus. One that comes to mind is "Where you there when they crucified my lord" . I know as a Pastor I am always thinking of the songs that will go with the scripture lessons so that the lessons and sermons will have more meaning. Thanks for your post, it is very thought provoking.
