Ephesians 5:19 tells us to Speak to one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs. Sing and make music in your hearts to the Lord.
I’ve been involved in Churches all my life from eight days old and have sung hundreds of hymns, plenty of spiritual songs (some good, some not so good) but in these Churches I have rarely sung a Psalm.
The Psalms have been sung for centuries, for millennia, yet we come along and think we can do better!
I was particularly challenged by this article https://theweeflea.com/2018/09/10/a-revolutionary-question-for-the-evangelical-church/ from David Robertson and decided we need to change!
So now we try and sing at least one every week, sometimes more. Most are metrical but some less so, we get them from various sources. We also sing a mixture of older hymns and newer songs. Join us and make a joyful noise!
