Music of Christmas

Music of Christmas

Every week when we gather together as a church, we sing songs. Why do we do that? Why do we sing? And does what we sing have any importance to our day-to-day walk with God?

Music is a part of every culture and has, for a long time, been a part of every culture. Music and our ability to sing and hear music are a part of what it means to be human. As long as there have been mothers and babies, there have been lullabies. As long as people have fallen in love, there have been love songs. As long as hearts get filled with joy, you have to sing. When we’re happy, we sing. When we’re desperate, we sing.

It’s because music communicates in a way nothing else can. And that’s why music is always associated with Christmas. Something about Christmas makes the heart want to sing; whether it’s the funny Christmas songs on the radio or the sacred Christmas songs we sing in our church, the music we hear this month uplifts us. Our December will be all about music, so join us as we reflect on the posture we take as we listen to the music around us.
