One of the great benefits of communal worship is that witnessing the expressions of faith of our brothers and sisters strengthens our own faith. When you come forward to serve in music ministry you give a visible and audible testimony of your faith and that testimony awakens and strengthens the faith of all who worship with you.
Awe is an opening to the divine. Awe’s sister and catalyst, beauty, likewise can open us. Like the Spirit, music immerses us. Like the Spirit, music moves us. Both touch our emotions and move us us along, calling us to respond. Music well done opens us, immerses us, moves us. It is spiritually effective because it imitates and readily cooperates with the Spirit.
So why be a music minister? Why work at your art?
