He's a conductor...but not the train kind. He is a maker of music. A shaper of sound. A maestro. Heh...it's kind of amazing actually. He stands up in front of nearly 500 people who are all making their own joyful noise and helps them to make it even better.
Ah. To make a joyful noise. Raise your voice. Toot your horn. To remember that this horn we have been given can blow more than one note. And to have a capable director, standing in front of us, reminding us when to come in.
Because we do know. We've practiced it hundreds of times. But sometimes we need to be reminded when to sing out. Or speak up. Or toot our own horn.
The Dalai Lama says, "Appreciate how rare and full of potential your situation is in this world, then take joy in it, and use it to your best advantage."
Use your voice. Use it the best way you can. And appreciate the potential of your contribution.
Lead. Or be led.
But don't just go.
