Growing up in church, I always wondered what purpose music and singing really played in church? Was music that contained spiritual themes supposed to make God happy? Was it something that God needed or expected from us? At times i thought it was just the warm-up act for the speaker that morning - to make sure everyone was awake? Other times I saw it as just an opportunity for local musicians to express themselves while others sang along?
But then one Sunday, I experienced something quite profound as I sang along with everyone at church. It's hard to explain what happened, but it had an undeniable effect on me. I felt inspired, encouraged, even emotional. Have you ever experienced something like that? What exactly is that about anyway? This Sunday, we're going to explore these experiences and what science is now confirming about them.
