David’s Harp at The Good Shepherd Institute
Lunch on Monday, November 7th
Alleluia! Sing to the LORD a new song, his praise in the assembly of the godly
Let Israel be glad in his Maker; let the children of Zion rejoice in their King!!
In the midst of the 23rd Annual Good Shepherd Institute, David’s Harp board members were able to gather together over lunch with musicians, missionaries, and leaders from centers of music all across the globe. What a joy it was to hear how music is being used to proclaim the Gospel in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Indiana, Tennessee, New York, Taiwan, Indonesia, and Latin America. What gifts the Lord has given to His people! From the challenges of providing musicians for the church in rural America, to a congregation utilizing the gifts of the community to enrich lives through music in the Bible belt, to hymnals and their companion resources being developed for use in the mission field to encourage the Church’s song, and now on the cusp of seeing a music conservatory established as a centerpiece for the Church’s mission work in Asia, the Lord is freely giving His gifts through music. A new song is being sung all the time as children discover God’s gift of music, and through the use of the Hymns of the Season books, they have the Word of Christ dwelling in them richly. Participants encouraged one another by sharing the joys of participating in musical mission work. But they also explored possibilities for the future, with David’s Harp board members taking notes about how we can be of service to congregations, schools, and mission sites who might also desire to use music to proclaim Christ in their communities. Alleluia! Sign to the LORD a new song! Let the children of Zion rejoice in their King!
