The Protestant Reformer Martin Luther once said, “Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world,” and “Beautiful music is the art of the prophets that can calm the agitations of the soul; it is one of the most magnificent and delightful presents God has given us.”
During this Advent season, Alba Beasley and the music ministry of UBC are giving us this “greatest treasure.” Last Sunday, Jubilate, our collegiate choir presented a beautiful Festival of Lessons and Carols, while Lindsay Marshall sang a lovely Call to Worship. And this coming Sunday, our Sanctuary Choir will lead in worship.
The beauty of this music is matched by the beauty of our sanctuary. Many thanks to our Floral Committee and our Wednesday Work Crew for decorating our sanctuary with the Chrismon tree, wreaths and garlands.
In the midst of all the bad news we’ve received in our community lately, may the songs of this season calm the agitations of our soul and give witness to our faith in a loving and caring God!
Let’s sing on!
