Spoonful of Soul, Sunday, April 21, 2013

Flipping through the channels this morning I stopped on Hillsong Conference not knowing what it was. Louie started talking about Psalm 148 and pulsars playing the music of the stars. Praise the Lord from the heavens. That immediately got me hooked. He played a recording of the Vela Pulsar and called it God's rhythm section. It is a sophisticated rhythm.

Next he added "God's string section" played by a globular cluster of stars. It really does sound like the tuning of string instruments.
Praise the Lord from the earth, you great sea creatures and all ocean depths; he played a recording of the whales singing.

 He added these with the drumbeat sound of another pulsar. Then he topped it all off with man's voice for the final mash-up--Chris Tomlin's How Great is Our God. It gives me goosebumps...
