The Last Choir Standing

Tonight is the first time I have watched The Last Choir Standing from start to finish. What an inspiration they all are ! But the phrase that has prompted this blog is this from the leader of Sense of Sound group: "We are all individuals but with one voice".

They were all in shades of purple, all reflecting their own individuality through their dress but they were with "one voice" as they performed as a group.

I love that concept of celebrating our individuality alongside our "one voice"..... brings to mind
'Romford Salvation Army, Living as God's Family, Building His Kingdom'!

Lord show us how .....
