Random Act of Culture

Generosity // November 10, 2010

I just learned of a surprise “Random Act of Culture” that occurred on, Oct. 30 at Macy’s in Philadelphia.

A project of the Knight Foundation, they are offering 1,000 random acts of culture over the next 3 years around the United States.

The act at Macy’s involved the Opera Company of Philadelphia, secretly posing as shoppers when suddenly, accompanied by the world’s largest pipe organ, all 600 singers burst into the Hallelujah Chorus.

Can you imagine the sound, surrounded by 600 professional vocalists accompanied by that massive pipe organ? Isn’t it fun to give when people least expect it? I love this!! That Christ was exalted in this way, is amazing. What a great act of generosity!

As I watched the video, I was struck by another thought: isn’t this exactly the way, Christ’s return on earth will occur? When we least expect it, going about our daily routine, suddenly there will be a sound unlike any, we have ever heard. I can’t wait! Can you? Are you ready?

About Rusty Lewis

As a church leader, there’s nothing more frustrating than not having the funding to do what God’s calling you to do. But when you think about trying to address that problem, you feel overwhelmed, you dread the potential pushback from your congregation, and you’re not sure where to turn for help. Over the last 18 years, I’ve helped more than 120 churches close the gap between their current financial reality and what they need to move forward in ministry.
