Lift up your voices and sing!
One of the few last places where we sing together as a community is in worship, in church. At least it’s like this in the United States and Canada . . .
When I lived in Germany in the late 80s, we often would sing songs in school (and, no, not in “choir class”). Really! I remember distinctly one outing we had in the Black Forest (Schwarzwald) where our whole class sung folk songs on the way up the mountain.
Maybe it’s not that way, anymore. I dunno.
What I do know is that singing can be, and is, a divine activity. Singing brings us to another world and many spiritual practices include it.
What songs do you like to sing? Or are you more of a listener?
