Squaring the Culture




"...and I will make justice the plumb line, and righteousness the level;
then hail will sweep away the refuge of lies,
and the waters will overflow the secret place."
Isaiah 28:17

Hallelujah!

A lone, 22-year-old girl standing in the food court of a shopping mall breaks out with the opening bars of the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah. Then a couple of other shoppers and a mall janitor join in… and pretty soon, and entire choir is singing the entire piece in excellent form.

No, it was not spontaneous, it was planned carefully. Last Saturday the Chorus Niagara performed the Hallelujah Chorus unannounced at the food court of the Seaway Mall in Welland, Ontario, CA. Listen:

The shoppers loved it. Some stood, all applauded, and I don’t doubt that a few sang along.

It’s not just good music, it’s faith. You can’t kill it. No matter how hard they try, Christianity will not be bred out of the West.

Have a happy holiday season, folks. Happy Thankgiving, merry Christmas, and Hallelujah!
