Wednesday Music Meditation October 7, 2020

Hello Trinity Family,
This past Sunday, Pastor Kern’s sermon resonated with me. Much in our lives has changed over the past year. As I have been going through the motions of a typical church musician’s fall, I can’t help but dwell on the differences in my life and in my faith in the past twelve months. Musically speaking, my life feels like a reharmonized hymn. The melody is the same, but the rhythm and tonality have kept me on my toes. This week I offer Joel Raney’s arrangement of “It is Well With My Soul”. This is an old hymn, but this arrangement offers different chords and rhythms that I think complement this year’s unique challenges.
The link to the video is HERE.
Here is the hymn text for your reflection:
When peace like a river, attendeth my way,
When sorrows like sea billows roll
Whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul
