Post 91 / The Next Language
May 24, 2022
Yesterday I experienced an amazing feat of collaboration. I am in Indonesia and our GRN staff took me to a bamboo musical where mostly children played Indonesian music on a bamboo instrument called an angung.
Here is a video sample of a single piece of the program. (Video may be slow to start.)
It was thoroughly musical and very pleasant but what amazed me was what they taught the audience to do. I wish I had filmed it.
They gave all of us an angung. Each in the audience had an angung with one tone and the corresponding number on it. The director would signal us when our number was to play. In a very short time a hundred of us were playing very sensitive music and you could feel the connectivity with everyone else that was playing their angung.
I couldn’t help comparing this to the gifts God gives us believers and how He works through us individually to corporately accomplish His Kingdom work. Some of us may only have one note in the orchestra but when played appropriately it becomes part of the “greater works” that Jesus promised after His ascension.

We then, [as] workers together [with him], beseech [you] also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain. [2Co 6:1 KJV]
