I was looking for something interesting to post today and came across a wonderful video of the United States Air Force band. http://www.cnsnews.com/mrctv-blog/eric-scheiner/air-force-musical-flash-... They were performing a surprise concert at the Smithsonian National Air and Space museum in Washington DC.
I love most flash mob videos, but this was an especially pleasing one to me because recently there has been a bit of controversy on how our military is supposed to behave when it comes to concerns of religion. In addition there is often a less than Christ focused approach to most public Christmas celebrations. Imagine then my delight when the first notes from the cello were for Jesus Joy of man's desiring. As the orchestra gathered together and the music began to swell, my spirits rose with each note. The conductor, choir and orchestra heartily announced the reason for the celebration as they closed out the mini concert with a resounding Joy to the World. All around them people smiled and applauded.
It appears that no matter how much the Grinch tries to steal Christmas, light and joy always seem to make their way through. I hope you will follow the link to the concert and enjoy the celebration of the greatest news of all time: Joy to the world, the Lord is come, let earth receive her King.
