Last Sunday we had the opportunity via Zoom to gather together to share in the worship of Almighty God. It was good to see the faces of the community of St. Georges. Like some other people I am technologically challenged, but the assistance offered by those who are very comfortable with modern technology made it possible for me and others like me to participate. I thank everyone who makes our weekly gathering possible via Zoom.
Tonight as I eating supper I was soothed and thrilled by The Philharmonic Orchestra of London playing Johannes Brahms Violin Concerto in D major, Op.77 with Itzhak Perlman, violinist. Of course the Orchestra could not physically fit into my kitchen and the harmonious sound I heard and saw them creating had been made in 1978. Once again technology, this time via Utube, made it possible for me to experience an event that I had not been able to physically attend.
We live in the world at a time that used to be the bread and butter of early Science Fiction writers. Today, isolation and physical distancing do not need to mean the break-down of community nor the end of the enjoyment of inspiring works of music. Being created in the image of God means that the human race is gifted by God with all that is necessary to make sure that our relationship with God flourishes, and our healthy love for neighbour and self continues to grow.
