I am certain there are treasures in landfills beyond our wildest dreams.
I am certain the gifts to change the world are right before our eyes.
I am certain there is enough good in the world to redeem all the garbage we create and dump on one another.
I am certain of all of this because I have a deep faith in a God of redemption and grace, who sees beauty in places I see filth, who sees no one as disposable, and who longs for us to praise him as one big orchestra no matter the origins of each player or each instrument.
The following video touched me, and I am excited to see where the project goes. I wanted to share it with you.
1 Praise the Lord. Praise God in his sanctuary;
praise him in his mighty heavens.
2 Praise him for his acts of power;
praise him for his surpassing greatness.
3 Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet,
praise him with the harp and lyre,
4 praise him with timbrel and dancing,
praise him with the strings and pipe,
5 praise him with the clash of cymbals,
praise him with resounding cymbals.
6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
Praise the Lord.
