This afternoon we attended a “Festival of Praise”, a gathering of church choirs and musicians. It was an event I initiated ten years ago but when I retired as music director in our church I also passed the Festival reins along to someone else. It was lovely to be able to take part today sans responsibilities.
The various groups each presented a number of their anthems, and then we all joined together to sing two more pieces. Talk about raising the roof! There’s something about praising en masse that stirs the soul.
There’s also an analogy wrapped in that word ‘together’. No matter what we do in life, we have to do our own part but when we work within a partnership the results can be so much better.
“… all things are possible with God.” (Mark 10:26b)
A partnership with God. Something to think about, isn’t it?
