The Classics

Both the Melbourne Staff Songsters and the Melbourne Veterans' Band offered classic music tonight at their concert at the great Ringwood Corps. We really enjoyed the friendliness of the programme and excellent music performed by terrific people. We were blessed to be there.

Music speaks to my soul. The Spirit has always found my heart open with a song. Tonight was no exception. I'm glad. Thank you, Lord.

Isaiah 30:29 (MSG)
29 But you will sing, sing through an all-night holy feast! Your hearts will burst with song, make music like the sound of flutes on parade, En route to the mountain of God, on the way to the Rock of Israel.

I sometimes get annoyed when music & song seems to be the only way we worship
Being partially deaf this is difficult for me I have to concentrate so hard on the listening and then the hearing is distorted that I do not always enjoy.
even with the aid of technology a true sound is not heard and music often grates rather than being that sweet sweet sound. thought this might be a consideration when preparing worship services - I don't mean not to have music that's ridiculous but consider other options Like a beautiful poem on screen, or a chance to write our own worship poems - I worship through the written word more than anything. I know music soothes the soul just not necessarily everyones. Just as my siggestions would not appeal to the blind.

As a child my father used to turn off his hearing aid at school concerts - he could than sit back and have a great time. Today we have a person in our corps who always sits in the back corner of the hall - this is where he gets the best reception. We might need to build halls with more back corners for those who find it hard to hear.
