To Sing or Not to Sing

musical notesI have a song I want to sing this Sunday as part of my sermon. I have been practicing it, and I think I am getting it. Of course, I am no Susan Boyle!

But I am more concerned that people in the church would prefer that I not sing, at least in my sermon. Just focus on speaking, I think I hear them say. Is that true?

I want people to hear the message, and if my song throws them off I am not being true to the mission given to me.

Of course, I am praying, asking God to guide me in this.  But it would help if people who read this blog would offer their opinions, too.

What about you? Do you have an opinion? Sing or not sing?

Let me know through this poll (anonymously), or you can reply to this message.
