2 Chronicles 5:13

The trumpeters and musicians joined in unison to give praise and thanks to the Lord. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, the singers raised their voices in praise to the Lord and sang:

‘He is good;
his love endures for ever.’

Do you remember where you were when 9/11 was happening? Or where you were when you heard about Princess Diana's death? Most people can recall where they were during important world/life changing moments.  

In the wee small hours on the 31st August 1997 I was called into work and while driving into Edinburgh heard about Princess Dianna's death on the radio. A couple of days later U2 were playing at Murrayfield.  Some people were critical about the concert being allowed to go ahead as they thought it was disrespectful. At the concert Bono paid tribute to Princess Dianna and a single beam of light shone up into the night sky as he sang MLK and then One.  50,000 people joined in the singing of this song to remember Dianna. It was a very poignant moment and a reminder that life is fragile.   





Lord God
Thank you for the gift of music.  
Music can calm us, change our mood and inspire us.
Thank you that we can use music to remember those we have loved and lost.  

Lord, we have just one life here on this earth, help us to live it well.
