There’s nothing like escaping to a beautiful mountain stream when life is busy. I recently went fishing early in the morning with my brother. He was fishing up stream a bit, and I was downstream just taking in the serene setting.
It was spectacular. Mist rising off the stream. The chill of the morning. It was crazy peaceful.
Now, this didn’t happen, but imagine whatever peaceful escape you like to go to. You’re there enjoying the stillness, then a helicopter flies by. All the stillness is interrupted by the loud chopper! Moment over.
Music can have the same calming impact on a person’s spirit as a mountain stream. But, as leaders, we can interrupt it because of poor planning. Awkward transitions chop up the service like a helicopter flying over a mountain stream.
