Our Enjoyment of God

Jenson writes of the incorporation of Christian humanity into the triune life through music:

 “Our enjoyment of God is that we are taken into the triune singing.  Perhaps we may say that we are allowed to double the parts.  And here too we must insist on concreteness.  That the proclamation and prayer of the church regularly bursts into beauty, indeed seems to insist on music and choreography and setting, is not an adventitious hankering to decorate.  A congregation singing a hymn of praise to the Father is doubling the Son’s praise, and the surge of rhythm and melody is the surge of the Spirit’s glorification of the Father and the Son.”

{Thanks to Peter Leithart}
