Sounds of Home
Growing up I never gave to much thought to the sound of the accent 'round these parts'. Anyway, I was at my mother-in-law's church on a Sunday a few weeks back when they had a bit of construction going on in their sanctuary. So what does a music minister do when their sanctuary is a mess, the jumbo-tron isn't available, and you still need to lead music. Sing amazing grace acapella. Wow! Was it a beautiful sound. I can not remember ever thinking this little town's version of southern drawl was more spectacular than in the moments of that song.
