How inspiring was the concert at the Chapel last night!  The Williamsburg Symphonia performed great works with such skill and the acoustics seemed perfect within the new sanctuary.  Many thoughts struck me.  I was amazed at the power of the composers to have recorded vast movements of energy..of volume and pace while blending the many various instruments to weave music like a tapestry.  Somehow all of that power and majesty has been captured on paper.  A code of notes written on lines was created by the composers many years ago.  Under the skilled guidance of the orchestras conductor and with the focused performance of highly trained musicians, the original message of the composer was brought to life and we, the listeners, were carried back to enjoy the great work intended by the music's author.  I was reminded of the parallel to God's Word.  We hold the message of the great Composer and as we read under the Holy Spirit as our conductor the marvelous truths laid down centuries ago come to life and we hear His song.
2 Kings 3:15 But now bring me a musician."
Then it happened, when the musician played, that the hand of the LORD came upon him.
