Time After Pentecost — Lectionary 13 (Year A)

Musical instruments need regular tuning, and there is a sense in which the human heart also needs to be tuned in order to sing and live truthfully. Tune my heart to sing thy grace, says an old American hymn. We’ll hear the hymn, and other well-tuned songs on this episode of Sing For Joy.
