The World Sends Us Garbage, We Send Back Music

Last night I noticed this video being shared around Facebook:

Three thoughts from watching the video:

  • The creativity and resourcefulness exhibited in putting these instruments together is phenomenal to me.
  • The best line of the whole video for me was this: People realize that we shouldn’t throw away trash carelessly. Well we shouldn’t throw away people, either. That’ll preach.
  • This story is a beautiful metaphor of what the church can, and should, be.

How are YOU stewarding the raw materials YOU’VE been given?
