If I have guessed correctly there may be a few of you who have gone out shopping today? Just a hunch…
I came across a great video of something that took place just a couple weeks ago at a shopping mall. If you’ve got 4-5 minutes it’s totally worth watching. If you’ve never seen or heard of a flash mob, I’ll give you the quick wikipedia definition:
A flash mob (or flashmob) is a large group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place, perform an unusual and pointless act for a brief time, then disperse. The term flash mob is generally applied only to gatherings organized via telecommunications, social media, or viral emails.The term is generally not applied to events organized by public relationsfirms, protests, and publicity stunts.
The following video is pretty powerful… there is such power in music and even more power in the name of Jesus. This flash mob sings the Hallelujah Chorus in the middle of a food court. I love watching the people react. Several are drawn to tears and I believe a few non flash mob folk begin singing as well.
Talk about an entry point afterward… people asking you why you just did that… What a great opportunity to proclaim the story of the One you were just singing about!
Hallelujah to that!
