Today, I discovered this recording of crickets, overlayed with the same recording slowed down. Their song is a hymn… voices in harmony… like the sounds of a human chorus. It got me thinking about Luke 19: 37-40.
Even if we don’t notice, the whole creation is lifting up a song of praise.
Even if we can’t hear or comprehend, the world is singing out.
Next time this verse comes up in the lectionary, I might just play this entire piece as the backdrop for worship.
