I just wanted to share a wonderful experience I had on Sunday just after the concert at the Mother Church. There was one piece of music that struck a chord with me, hauntingly beautiful and moving beyond words. The song was “Peace like a river” and it certainly carried a sense of peace and healing and pure Soul within it. I was leaving Church with the CD kindly provided for those who attended and was heading to a spot where I knew I could grab a taxi with ease. I have gone there on many occasions and jumped in to find a driver who I recognized from previous trips.
He reminded me that last time I hopped in I had asked him what was the best thing that had happened to him that day - and so in turn he asked me the same question as we set off. I said that I had just been to a concert and had heard a piece of music that had touched my soul. I then asked him if he had a CD player in the taxi and if so I would love to share it with him. So we unwrapped the CD, found the song and turned it up to full volume for the journey home.
No words were needed. Pure delight all round.
As I got out he said the best thing that had happened to him that day was hearing that beautiful song.
