"I was born, I was born to sing for you
I didn't have a choice but to lift you up
And sing whatever song you wanted me to
I give you back my voice from the womb
My first cry, it was a joyful noise,"
Bono, Magnificent from album "No Line on the Horizon"
Now we realize that unless you have a penchant for musicals, the sudden breakout into public singing may be a bit awkward. Although the sailors and soldiers depcited in the movies of yesteryear crooned their way through life - it is not the norm in 21st century Vancouver. And yet...
At Reality (and hopefully throughout the church) we sing because God made us to. It is a natural expression of who we are and more importantly an exaltation or proclamation of who God is. We sing together because we are together and we were made for togetherness - with God first and with each other second. There is no more effective way to bind a rag-tag group of various hearts, minds, thoughts, ideologies, and purposes than to focus together on the One who is, always has been and always will be. To sing about His character, His love, His grace, His mercy and His justice. That's when corporate worship takes place...not just music.
In short: We sing because God is God. We sing to make Him known.
