Sing me a song...

Many followers of Jesus think that their faith is under siege. Around them they see people attacking their beliefs and the practice of these beliefs. It isn’t the first time that the followers of God have found themselves surrounded by unfriendly forces. Over 2,500 years ago God’s people were hauled off to be slaves of a foreign power. There captors taunted them to sing praises to God in face of the toil of forced labor and homelessness. The Psalmist, recording this experience, asks:

How can we sing the songs of the Lord while in a foreign land? – Psalm 137:4

If we are going to faithfully live our faith in a post-Christian world, we will need to learn to sing the songs the Lord in a foreign land. What do you think? – Ron Friesen
