Song of Peace

It’s the stuff of legend: the day the shelling and slaughter were stopped by a song, war halted by the melancholy strains of "Silent Night." (On Sunday, we’ll share a video that depicts this, but you can get a sneak preview here.) It’s a powerful image - stopping war with music, bringing peace with a melody - but how real can it be?

While the famous Christmas truce of WWI might be legendary, there is another story of a song that broke the power of war and much, much more when it was sung; a song that ushered in the chance for true, lasting peace. Let’s give it a listen this Sunday.

Grace and peace, y’all,

 

J.Ray
