Worship Song: My Beloved

Worship Song: My Beloved

April 4, 2019
by Kennon Bickhart

The song I wanted to focus on in this article is, “My Beloved” by Crowder. We first sang this in the summer of 2017. One of our music leaders, Adam Lusk, first introduced this song while I was on vacation. It wasn’t something that happened behind my back, but he brought the song to me and said he wanted to sing it while I was away. I’m glad that our leaders feel confident enough to introduce new music while I’m not there to organize it.

The purpose of this article is to let you know about some small changes taking place regarding the governing board of Good News Church. The main things that are happening are that one elder (Adam Lusk) has rolled off the board after having completed his term as elder, two other elders (Lance Powers and Charles Chazal) have continued into their second terms as elders. And another person (Ron Lynch) has been nominated to take the place vacated by Adam Lusk.

Back again with another article in the running series on the music we sing together at our services. This one is centered on the song, “All The People Said Amen” by Matt Maher. This song came out on April 23, 2013, but the first time we sang it was February 22, 2015. There was almost 2 full years between its release and us singing the song corporately at a Sunday morning service.

This article is hopefully the first in a series of articles surrounding the music that’s selected for us to sing during our church services. In these articles, I would like to take a song that we’re singing (or planning on singing) and think through some questions surrounding it. Why are we singing this particular song, is there a particular meaning behind the song, what scripture(s) connect directly to its lyrics, etc…?

The timing of this article is admittedly awful. In one sense, answering this question in January could be the least helpful time to do it. My apologies, but I honestly didn't think about addressing this topic until now. And now that it's in my head and heart, I don't want to wait for 10 or 11 months, and then try to remember to bring it up at the end of 2019.
