One voice crying out in the desert led many to “prepare the way of the Lord”
One voice speaking “Yes” brought the Christ child into the world and allowed countless souls to give their lives to Christ.
The combined voices of the shepherds, normally disregarded by society, brought many to their knees to praise and adore the newborn King.
The voice of one woman of questionable reputation was the first to announce the news of the Ressurection to the Apostles.
We all have a voice and a message to speak and live.
A voice as unique as the image of God we are created in.
A voice, infused by God’s grace, used to connect others divided by the spirit of the world.
Have you discovered your voice? Have you discovered what your words spoken and written should truly say?
Have you allowed God to transform your voice to be used as an instrument to unite souls?
May we be given the grace to see and believe like the shepherds and use our voices to praise and glorify God leading others to unite in belief.
Eric Whitacre, a composer, was struck by the power of one voice and this one voice led to the creation of what he calls a “happy accident”. A young woman sent a recording via the internet of her singing one of Eric’s composed songs. Eric was struck by the beauty of it and wondered what it would be like to unite other voices in this way. He sent out a request over the web and was flooded with responses. From these responses he chose 185 voice from 12 countries and created the first virtual choir. The video below will move you. The power of one voice that led to the creation of many voices all in angelic harmony praising God. All miles apart uniting in cyberspace to give glory to God. The song “Lux Aurumque” is Latin for gold and light. The song, a poem writted by Edward Esch, is sung in Latin. The English translation is:
Warm and heavy as pure gold
And angels sing softly
to the newborn babe.
Let us end 2011 with voices of thanksgiving for all the blessings received. Let us welcome 2012 with voices of praise for all that is to come. And may we use our voices always for the praise of God’s glory in that unique way only we can speak.
May you have a blessed new year.

Thanks be to God, I have found my voice here in this blogging community and online, in general. When unknown folks out there see my words, they open their hearts. When they hear me in person, they turn off because of my appearance, my accent, my injured vocal chords, whatever.
