creatively Bach

Jan 4, 2014

Perhaps the greatest musical family of all time was the Bach clan who over a couple of hundred years produced fifty significant composers and musicians including Johann Sebastian Bach. It was J.S. Bach who distracted me in the midst of my homily preparation this morning, thanks to facebook friend Barry who uploaded this creative presentation of J.S.B’s Jesu Joy of Man’s Desiring.

I was happily and humourously distracted by both the Bach brilliance, and the genius of contemporary creativity and imagination which has the painstaking patience to turn an idea into a reality. I hope you enjoy this three minute distraction as much as I did.

Thomas was not doubting as much as seeking; he was expressing the desire of one who truly yearns for adult faith.

I have no doubt that God used the stars to shift my focus from my own failures and successes to the God I was seeking to follow.
