TONIGHT's Topic: "Elephants In Thimbles"
Elephants In Thimbles
“God, the most formidable word ever spoken.”
That was the line printed on the program underneath the name of the composition. I had a first-row ticket to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and it was worth it. I will never forget that evening.
The music was powerful, foreboding, haunting, compelling, and magnificent all at the same time. There were moments when the music caused your chest to rattle and moments when it lured you with a whisper.
What I experienced that night was the breathtaking attempt of an exceptionally gifted composer to capture God, in all his amazing and variegated glory, in a single piece of music. In some ways, it was a triumphant effort; very few humans could arrange music like that. Yet, at the same time, it was a dismal and embarrassing failure.
For any human being to think that he or she could capture the glory of God in a single artistic statement is delusional at best and arrogant at worst. Psalm 113 says, “The Lord is high above all nations, and his glory above the heavens! Who is like the Lord our God, who is seated on high, who looks far down on the heavens and the earth?” (vv. 4-6, ESV)
To attempt to define He who is infinite with finite expressions is impossible, more impossible than squeezing the entire body of a grown elephant into a thimble. It won’t happen, no matter how talented you are and no matter how hard you try.
It's all about "Peer-to-Peer" Support and "Sharing is Caring!"
Tune in TONIGHT with Steve for a discussion about "Pleasure and Pain Cont'd!"
