Growing up, we went to church on a regular basis. Sunday School, choir, Christmas concerts, confirmation classes, you name it.
When getting ready on Sunday mornings, Mom always had the local country radio station on in the background.
So when I hear an old Gospel classic from days-gone-by, I’m transported back to shining pews with the lingering scent of Lemon Pledge, wearing my Mary Jane shoes and skipping towards the faces of dear ones who’ve long since left us. And with the right song, that feeling can happen right in my kitchen.
Did you listen to Gospel music growing up? What Hymn takes you home to the Church of your childhood?
“There is a sound that comes from gospel music that doesn’t come from anything else. It is a sound of peace. It is a sound of, ‘I’m going to make it through all of this.”~ Yolanda Adams
