Since yesterday, when the President of the United States proclaimed churches to be essential, I have seen two major themes emanating from my Christian Facebook friends and pages I follow.

During this time of fear and uncertainty in the COVID-19 wilderness, I’ve decided to do something a little different. I’m going to be daily using my blog to share texts and videos of hymns that pass along hope and comfort until the restrictions are lifted, and we can worship in our buildings once again.

Patheos Evangelical blogger and Professor of Literature emeritus Gene Veith proclaimed this week that “Singing is unlikely to spread COVID-19.” He apparently came to this conclusion after reading a couple of German studies, and now he’s ready to jump back into congregational singing, taking other congregations with him.
