LORD, all the earth!” Most often, we think of joyful noise as music,
singing - singing praises to the Lord.
Although Psalm 98 describes the sea roaring, the rivers clapping their
hands & the hills breaking forth in song. The Psalms together create a
vision of all of creation - people & land, so to speak - joining together in
noisy worship of God.
The word “noisy” can throw us - especially those of us who enjoy
quieter music or are seeking calm & quiet in our worship. Some of us
have a lot of noise in our day-to-day world. Some of us have too much
silence in our lives, especially in our Covid separations.
