I woke up in a funk this morning feeling generally sorry for myself and whining to God about this or that. I meant to quickly check my facebook before getting ready for church, but came across a post from a friend that showed something that happened in Philidelphia last weekend. I watched it with amazement - much like those customers in Macy's must have felt - and then with tears streaming down my face when I fully realized not only the wonderful opportunity they were having to experience such a performance, but the words that were being declared from practically the rooftop of a major store in a major US city by a cross-section of people. It gave me chill bumps and changed my grumbling to worshipping Jesus this morning, leaving me with a big smile on my face. So I had to stop and share it with you.
The biggest Random Act of Culture yet took place in Philadelphia Saturday – with more than 650 singers bursting into Hallelujah from Handel’s Messiah in the middle of a downtown Macy’s. The world’s largest pipe organ – with 28,000 pipes – accompanied them. Take a moment to watch this. It will make you smile.
