Singing at the Edge
(Minister Richard X)
“God sings songs that carry the heaviness of this world and songs that hold the hope that this world will give birth to something new.”
What songs do you hear God singing?
With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. And you will say in that day:
Give thanks to the Lord,
call on his name;
make known his deeds among the nations;
proclaim that his name is exalted.
Sing praises to the Lord, for he has done gloriously;
let this be known in all the earth.
Shout aloud and sing for joy, O royal Zion,
for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.
