Pentecost music

for July 9, 2022 ( late into the evening )

Good morning,We were out late last evening to a concert at the Kultrun Festival. It was at the baseball diamond in St. Jacobs behind the Firehall. There were four bands, and  the last one was from South Korea. This is how the last band described themselves and their music:

Name : NST and the Soul Sauce ” South Korean reggae band with a unique blend of reggae, jazz, afrobeat, funk, soul and traditional Korean music “.How do you think it sounded ? It was amazing, and the crowd loved it. It was so different from… country   music or hymn singing. The picture below was the band playing under the light of the moon.

Musicians/instruments  included: 
 Electric guitar 
 Bass guitar   
Bongo drums 

 KeyboardI thought about the church when they were playing. This is who we aspire to be. We are playing different instruments, trying to play in tune to God. But God does not care if we are in tune, but when we are, it makes great music. We might not think that we can get along, and we believe that we believe different things, but God can bring us all together. We can be a new Soul Sauce.

If this band can describe themselves like the definition above, we can find all of ourselves in the churches that we attend. No definition is too narrow for God.The coming of the Holy Spirit:

”  Then how is it that each of us hears them in our native language?  Parthians, Medes and Elamites; residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene; visitors from Rome .. ”  Acts 2:8-10

Justice and peace in our world.
