I know, this is not technically "music"! Still, I find the line between word and music be be a thin one. I both sing and speak the psalms, and hear music in each way.
The lines in this poem about "His Name," along with these verses in the selection from the first Letter of John my community read this weekend, prompted me to think about the what it means to be able to call on the name of Our Salvation. Our Salvation is not some nebulous theological concept, but a tangible reality, someone we can touch - someone we can name.
...we should believe in the name of his Son, Jesus Christ,
and love one another just as he commanded us.
Those who keep his commandments remain in him, and he in them,
and the way we know that he remains in us
is from the Spirit he gave us. [1 Jn 3:23-24]
