In Full Accord
Philippians Chapter 2 contains what is thought to be the earliest Christian hymn. Paul’s words to his beloveds in Philippi can be likened to a music director’s instructions to a singing group. Seattle Mennonite Church is like a choir with many voices, singing a complicated oratorio. Using this metaphor the instructions to the singers become: highlight your own part, practice and then listen to others so you know when to come in.
