WE ARE ALL COMPOSERS: We’ve been hearing it for weeks now: our church is in a time of transition and change. As we go through these times, it helps to look at things through a different lens. Since Music Sunday is coming up, and we as a church have always appreciated our music program, I thought it would be appropriate to approach the changes in our church looking through the lens of a music composer. God presents us with challenges, trials, and presents a path forward for us. Just as a composer must find the best pathway through a musical score, it is up to us as a church to figure out our own path through these trials. We’ll take a look at some basic concepts of music theory and see how these can compare with some of the decisions we could make. We are each as a musical composer in the eyes of God, and it is up to us to decide what kind of composition our church will write. – Michael Beveridge.
