Here's this week's Bible study blog entry for i.ucc:
I love to hear a good R & B love song. Let me listen to the soothing sounds of Barry White or Brian McKnight (I’ve been watching Celebrity Apprentice this season – and loved his singing on last night’s episode) with a song that celebrates people in love.
This week’s reading from Jeremiah 31:31-34 has a great love ballad line in it. I can hear the smooth tones of a singer belting it out with every bit of their soul:
I will write it on your hearts
Even though we broke apart
There’s no teaching left to do
Because you know that I love you
A brand new slate we’ll start
It don’t matter who you are
Because my love is always true
And remember. . I love you.
Sappy? Sure – but add some instruments, harmonies and a driving chorus -- and we’ve got a love song!
How does this week’s reading move you?
