Musical Talents Play Vibrant Role In The Experience the Power Campaign
Musical Talents Play Vibrant Role In
The Experience the Power Campaign
By Communications Director Patricia Ebanks
It was Martin Luther, the German professor of theology, composer, and ground-breaking figure in the Protestant Reformation, who said, “Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world.” Luther also said that “Music is one of the fairest and most glorious gifts of God.”
Undoubtedly, music had a singular ministerial role in touching lives of the hundreds gathered at the Experience the Power campaign at the Lions Centre, February 4 to March 3, 2018, or of the virtual audience viewing via the Internet.
One could easily conclude that for many attendees and online viewers the power of the various musical ministrations may very well have been as impactful as the sermons by the international motivational speaker Dr. Ramon Escalante.
Indeed, as the prolific Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen said, “Where words fail, music speaks.”
At the end of the campaign 128 new converts were baptised, hundreds of invitees came to hear keynote speaker Escalante and to enjoy the music, while thousands of others were reached by robust local and international broadcast initiatives.
From one of the largest auditoriums on Grand Cayman, the Lions Centre, the music ministry’s repertoire ranged from a full chamber orchestra, to individual violin, flute, harmonica and guitar performances, to soul-inspiring choir, group and solo voice renditions, many accompanied by a live band of musicians.
Clearly, the organisers had succeeded in bringing to bear on the Experience the Power campaign the best of the best in musical talent from across Cayman’s Adventist churches and to a lesser extent from the local community.
