If Silent Monks Were to Sing a Christmas Carol, Would It Be “Silent Night”?

No. It’s the “Hallelujah Chorus.”

(Not really monks, you know. Clever high school students instead.)

(Would this count as a cappella if there were no instruments?)

  1. I’m not sure what it would be, but I’m confident there would be some objection to this presentation … I just have to think outside of the book, to figure out what the objection would be.

  2. so you liked my email, eh?

  3. awesome and oddly beautiful.

  4. David,

    There’s a closely related controversy — whether a preacher can be interpreted to the deaf by a woman’s signing. Is she preaching? Is she speaking? She is, after all, quite clearly being silent.

    There are those who would damn over the question.

    The issue has particularly hit hard in the mission field, where some refuse to use female translators for preaching, although in some places the translators are nearly all female. It is, of course, considered a salvation issue.

  5. Erin,

    I did indeed.

    Readers,

    Erin is my daughter-in-law.
