On Advent Music Sunday, Minister of Art & Communication Phil Porter begins by imagining the first song that was ever sung. Music is so deeply rooted in the body and is a mystery—how do we know how to use our voices in so many different ways? And music moves us in so many different ways making it an important way to experience and express the holy. Through music we experience God’s peace and can share it in turn.
