As a pastor and as a musician, one of the things I miss in our new (and temporary) “normal” of worship in COVID-tide is the sound of our musical ensembles. Once, our worship was filled with their musical offerings of praise! One day, it will be again.
In the meantime, our music ensemble directors and members have been hard at work. They have found new and creative ways of rehearsing, and have embraced online platforms to share their gifts. Throughout the season of Lent, we will be sharing some of their musical offerings with you as part of our daily devotionals.
It’s my hope that these musical gifts will nourish your souls as they bring glory to God!
As we continue our journey through the season of Lent, today’s musical offering features our Kinderchor (Children’s Choir), directed by Heather Hunter. The children practiced for several months via Zoom rehearsals, and recently gathered outdoors (with masks and distancing) under a bright shining sun to record this offering of “Make Me A Servant.” The words read:
(United Methodist Hymnal, #298)
Make me a servant, humble and meek,
Lord, let me lift up those who are weak.
And may the prayer of my heart always be:
Make me a servant,
make me a servant,
make me a servant today.
(The Faith We Sing, #2176)
Church, I dare you not to melt when your hearts are so warmed by their sweet voices.
Actually, I don’t dare you. Melt away! And remember:
Our God is bigger than coronavirus.
Our vision is bigger than coronavirus, too.
We are people blessing people.
We are Wesley Church.
