I got to thinking yesterday about hymnals. I grew up in a church where hymnals were on the back of every row. Now, we tend to learn new songs by ear, and sing them by heart. Might not be a bad thing. But what about getting on the same page?
I've tried to sing with friends and family, and sometimes it's just funny. I can't seem to find the right pitch. American Idol judges love the word "pitchy." Is that a real word? Well, when you have a leader, you know what "pitch" to follow.
God is our leader. Can you imagine what it would be like to hear God sing? And God's Word is our hymnal, filled with all kinds of styles of music, all kinds of lyrics. One sound, one voice, one song. When we harmonize with God, we can harmonize with each other.
