We exercised our experimentation and fed our curiosity.
The music was lively and passionate.
As the fourth song was ending, i noticed that people were still arriving.
It took four songs before the arrivals stopped. We all have many reasons for being late.
The Church uses the songs to pass the time until everyone arrives. The people who are late might rationalize that being late is okay because the main message doesn’t start until 20 minutes past the hour.
The songs also set the mood and tone, serving as a bridge from Earthly issues to Heavenly issues.
Late arrivals miss the warm up.
Olympic athletes and world-class musicians never skip their warm up before an important effort.
It’s part of the reason they’re world class.

Just as the extraordinarily fit athlete unintentionally intimidates those filled with excuses, so the extraordinarily fit spirit intimidates those medicated with distractions, addictions, and attachments.
What jeff noel has been talking about at his “spirit” blog, is the coming of the King, born of a virgin, and placed in a horse’s trough in a stable. While this blog is about our physical responsibilities, jeff believes there is an undeniable truth – working hard pays dividends that those not willing to work hard will never know. A blessed Christmas eve to all.
