A Bit of Heaven

Seems the human connection simply cannot be broken. Eric Whitacre's virtual choir proves the point. With each choir member sequestered in his/her home singing solo to the same music, they combine to make a heavenly sound.

Only human beings connect through cards and notes, watch one another on television, hook up on facebook, and chat, text, and twitter non-stop. Animals don't attempt these endeavors. After all, if a dog barks it's less for others and more for himself. We on the other hand possess an inborn passion to connect with other human beings on some level be it ever so small. It's part of the unbreakable bond created when God made us in His image. We are like Him and one another all at the same time. When you mix our strong desire to unite with various talents and advanced technology you get something very special, the sound of heaven here on earth.

"Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.” So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them."

Genesis 1:26-27

"Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, singing: “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power, for ever and ever!”

Revelation 5:13
