“A person who sings prays twice…”

It was St. Augustine who said, “A person who sings prays twice.”  This is further elaborated  on by Phil Fox Rose, below:

Beautiful music itself, is prayer, and when wedded to words of praise the result is a foretaste of the new Earth to come.  This can be true whether it is plainchant, choral music or a modern composition (though we all have preferences.)

There is something about creative expression – no matter what form – that speaks of the other – that which is larger and more than ourselves –  connecting us to what I call the divine.

There is a creative wellspring within all of us.  To me it is dance, the poetic, prayer, the culinary arts…  What do you choose it to be for thee?
