Singing
Having posted on worship a couple of weeks back, and I know others have been talking about the whole singing/no singing worship stuff, I was struck by some words from Eugene Peterson:
"Song is one of the two ways (silence is the other) of giving witness to the transcendent.
And so biblically formed people do a lot of singing as they worship... Because God and therefore the worship of God, cannot be reduced to the rational, song has always been the basic act of worship
"
("Christ Plays in Ten Thousand Places, p176-177).

So can we ever ignore singing if we are to be true to being the people of God?
