Editor’s Letter Leave It There! Not many will recognize the name Charles A. Tindley, a 20th-century, Black Methodist minister known for his pioneering songwriting. But you may recall some of the spiritual hymns written by Tindley, whose father was a slave and his mother a freeborn, that became staples in the Church. They include hymns like, “Let Jesus Fix It for You,” “The Storm Is Passing Over,” “We’ll Understand It Better By and By” and “I’ll Overcome Someday,” which years later was modified to become the anthem for the 1960s civil rights movement. Tindley, who used his experience of escaping slavery and poverty to convey certain messages in his sermons and hymns, also drew from how he helped people deal with their problems. One instance is related in a story of Tindley’s encounter with a constant worrier who sought Tindley’s advice in dealing with his problems. Reportedly, Tindley looked at the man with concern, then said: “My advice to you is put all your troubles in a sack, take them to the Lord and leave them there.” Tindley later wrote “Leave It There,” a hymn based on Psalm 55:22, which urges us to give our problems to God, then trust Him to handle them and sustain us. Here’s the first stanza: If the world from you withhold of its silver and its gold, And you have to get along with meager fare, Just remember, in His Word, how He feeds the little bird, Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there. Leave it there, leave it there, Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there. If you trust and never doubt, He will surely bring you out, Take your burden to the Lord and leave it there. COVID-19 brought many worries and concerns in 2020 that linger to this day. We didn’t just flip the calendar to Jan. 1, 2021, and presto—no COVID, no worries. That’s what makes Tindley’s message as relevant today as when he wrote it years ago. We may not be able to solve our problems, but we can take them to the Lord, leave them there and trust that He will solve them. This month’s articles offer that assurance. I hope you will take time to read each of them. Ronald C.
