Actually, while I think of it – this is a thought for my Christian readers. One of the most interesting things about the conference for me, was the sheer enthusiasm of people in the arts, not just for the Tessitura software, but for what they do.
Far from an irritating job that they don’t want to talk about – they could talk to the cows come home about their companies and what they do.
It made me think – and I heard a speaker say this a few weeks ago – could this highlight a problem with our churches? How often have you been at church, and found out that everyone is talking about the weather/football, etc afterwards? There’s almost a fear of talking about the God that we’re gathering to worship.
Imagine what it would be like going to a church where the congregation’s enthusiasm for the Christian faith matched the enthusiasm of the arts world?
