I guess God heard me when I said I needed to reprogram my brain for something other than the two pieces we are singing in Sunday’s concert [see the note at the end of “A Rant…” below]. And God has a sense of humor. And His sense of humor doesn’t always correspond with our sense of humor. This song has been going through my head for the last couple of hours and I have no idea why it popped into the forefront.
I am the Church, you are the Church,
we are the Church together.
All who follow Jesus all around the world,
yes, we’re the Church together.”
The church is not a building,
the church is not a steeple,
the church is not a resting place,
the church is the people.
(repeat chorus, “I am the Church…”)
There are more verses than this, but this is the only one I have memorized all the way through. It’s a children’s song with hand motions. And yes, my Lord, I am amused.
