Musical Musings from Linda

7/10/20

When I was a little girl in church school I recall my very patient teacher trying to explain the nature of God’s love to us.

“There is NOTHING, you can do ” he said, “which would EVER make God stop loving you… and there is nothing that will ever separate you from God’s love, either…You are precious — and you are BELOVED…”

To my 5-year-old mind those were just “words” which didn’t catch fire in me until he said:
“GOD loves you so much that IF GOD HAD A REFRIGERATOR, YOUR PICTURE WOULD BE ON IT! “

“You Are Mine” is an exquisite song which captures the feeling of that amazing love . . . composer David Haas’s words sound like a love letter to each of us from God. The refrain goes like this:

“Do not be afraid, I am with you
I have called you each by name
Come and follow me
I will bring you home
I love you . . .

And you are mine.”

But EVEN BETTER!! —— tune in to our NMCC service on Sunday, July 12 and hear our own Eileen McCann and Tom Lauher sing it to each of you — God’s BELOVED children — as a personal message from the heart of God.
