This past Sunday the Hebrew Scripture lesson was from the creation story. I celebrated at a Lutheran Church and as usual experienced some songs I was not accustomed to. The song before the sermon spoke about who God sung at creation. Of course I immediately loved the song since that is how Narnia was created by the Lion.
I like that image of creation being sung. In the Hebrew Scripture creation was spoken into existence and it is not too far a leap to move to singing. I have to think that God must have had a tune in her mind if not her voice at the power and beauty of creation springing forth from the very sound of God's voice.
Our job is to continue as singers in God's wonderful choir as we attempted to usher in the kingdom of God in the broken world around us.
