‘Tis the season for choruses.
And particularly Christmas Choruses. The kind where people cry. Smile. Shout. Raise their hands.
Yes. Stand for the Chorus.

In many parts of the world it is traditional for the audience to stand during the Hallelujah Chorus. Legend has it that King George II was so moved by the music that he stood to his feet when he heard it, requiring that his subjects followed suit. There is some doubt over the accuracy of this story.
I think it’s probably a great idea to stand when we sing Hallelujah to the King.
After all, he’s not just any king.
He’s the King of Kings.
In your heart is where this King wants to live. Forever.
Do you know this King?
‘Tis the season to know the reason we celebrate Jesus.
I will stand with you.
In Jesus, you are never standing alone.
