Twenty years ago some very good people had a very good idea and put together some very good musicians to form the Melbourne Staff Songsters. We celebrated this moment with them and many of those who have belonged over the years. They even let Carolyn and me sing with them through the open rehearsal. They didn't invite us to come back next week for their regular rehearsal.
For twenty years they have been producing and presenting music in terms that God would value and people would be inspired. Their greatest moments would have included every opportunity they had to draw people to Christ. Whether they were drawn closer as members, concert goers, Salvos or not, the facilitation of a persons deepening relationship with Christ has been advanced. Hallelujah!
We were proud to sing with them and we are proud of them. God is too.
Zephaniah 3:17 (NIV)
17 The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing."
