Make a Joyful Noise S.S. Class to ‘RAP up in June

Well, no, they aren’t rapping. But my Sunday School class for adults has learned how to navigate through choral music and even follow directions for a calypso rhythm section called the “engine room.” (My daughter taught this one.) They’ve learned about the scales, the pattern of the major scale in half-steps and whole steps, names of keys on piano and names of lines and spaces in music. We learned about musical symbols (sharps, flats, etc.) and note values and counting. We have two performances in June. The course will be offered again in the future. It was great fellowship and a time of learning which will enrich our appreciation and participation in musical worship.

"God is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance and have eternal life."--the Bible

I love good old fashioned Christian hymns and gospel music. I have difficulty appreciating the contemporary music, but as our pastor said today, "If we don't respect their music how can we expect them to appreciate ours?" Food for thought.

I know I can appreciate a good old fashioned hymn about as much as I can appreciate a tax cut.
