Biblical knowledge

I've commented before on how much music can help impart Biblical texts and messages. Just this past week, one of the readings should have been familiar to everyone from the ordinary liturgy. During the Sunday School hour lately, I've overheard one class of students learning the books of the New Testament by singing the names.

So it made me laugh especially hard to see last week's episode of "Psych" on television, where one character tried to recite the books of the Bible:
Do...the right thing

If only his Sunday School teacher had taught more music!

  1. Music and stories, without them we would lose so much of the richness of our lives. The church functions to both preserve the stories and interpret them in our daily lives, which is also the function of the musicians. Keep up your good work.
