A musical performance in which a number of singers and/or instrumentalists participate.
Metro is bookending this upcoming week with two such events. (We are all invited to both!)
Bookends are important.
They hold everything up; they hold everything in place.
Bookends in ancient Hebrew literature were even more important.
The bookends of the Psalms, for example, presented vitally pertinent priorities for God’s people.
Psalm 1 opens with God’s people experiencing God’s blessing thru human flourishing—delighting in and meditating on His word, His will, His way.
Psalm 150 closes with the clarion call for God’s people to be a people of praise—and to do so using musical instruments:
- Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet;
- Praise Him with the lute and harp!
- Praise Him with the timbrel and dance;
- Praise Him with stringed instruments and flutes!
- Praise Him with loud cymbals;
- Praise Him with clashing cymbals!
It is in that spirit that we bookend this next week:
Monday: Mr. Toumayan, Mr. Davison, and the Metro Christian Academy Bands present this year’s Christmas Concert,tomorrow at 7pm in the auditorium.
Friday: Ms. Hendrix, StuCo, and the Leadership Class lead Metro’s annual “Lights On!” this Friday—at four occasions throughout the day.
What a wonderful way to usher in the Christmas season together!
We hope to see you there.
