Mnozil Brass

a Biblical thought...
For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted." (Luke 14:11)

a Book thought...
Sleep became only a necessary evil: he found it impossible to get to bed before midnight, and imperative that he get up no later than 4:30am. (p92)

a Dave thought...
Last night I went to the most amazingly entertaining concert I have been to my entire life. It was part of the Melbourne International Brass Festival and the act was Mnozil Brass. This seven piece Austrian group are not only phenomenal players but also fabulous singers, brilliant comedians and actors. For them to hold the attention of over 500 people for two hours without a spoken word was nothing short of incredible. I was reminded once again that if our music groups are going to connect with people, we need to work so hard on the whole entertainment package. Sure we want to share the gospel but if we can’t hold the attention of those who are listening we may never get a chance.

Just a thought.
