Ways to Hear the Word of God in Worship – Music

For worshipers sensitive to the aesthetic dimensions of well-
crafted music performed convincingly, experiencing such a
moment in the context of worship can serve as a vivid reminder of
God the Creator, who, in fashioning humankind in the divine
image, graced persons with their own creative gifts. As Robert
Mitchell noted in Ministry and Music, “Through the arts, espe-
cially through music, the transcendent, the ineffable, the
incomprehensible may be encountered as God’s Spirit brings
revelation to our human spirit.”
