A lovely instumental version of What Child is This? by modern violinist Lindsey Stirling.
I always like to do Christmas related items this time of year, because quite frankly I am a sap for Christmas and because Christmas has great meaning for anyone who believes it marks the birth of Jesus Christ, an event central to every Christian’s faith.
This is a a ‘Flash Mob’ that occurred in 2010 at the South Bay Galleria in Redondo Beach, California performed by singers from the Journey of Faith church there. It strikes me how these songs immediately change the atmosphere of the place. It is a small picture of how the spiritual transforms the secular, bringing peace and joy to the harassed and harried crowds in a way no secular performance ever could. It is a small picture of how the birth of Christ was a transformative spiritual event, and not just a historical one. Enjoy.
