Singing as a Spiritual Discipline

Where else in American culture do people sing together than in church?  This is a unique aspect of our way of being in the world.  Singing may well have preceded speech in human history by some accounts–singing is almost certainly our first language with God.  It is a fundamental practice of devotion.

Today find a song of worship and sing it.  It could be a hymn, a psalm, or something more contemporary.  If you can, gather others to sing with you.
