Sir Michael Costa was a great orchestral Conductor of the 19th Century. It is said that one day he was conducting a rehearsal in which the orchestra was joined by a great choir.¬† Midway through the session the piccolo player stopped playing. It seemed innocent enough – after all who would miss the tiny piccolo amidst the great mass of instruments blazing away? All of a sudden Sir Michael stopped the entire orchestra and choir. “Stop! Stop!¬† Where’s the piccolo? What’s happened to the piccolo?”
You may sometimes feel like that piccolo player – that you don’t have much to offer, that if you stopped your mission no one would notice anyway. Yet the Great Conductor notices, and needs YOU to complete his orchestral masterpiece! Your work, your attitude, your enthusiasm, your dedication makes this place what it is! Your patient needs you. Trinity needs you. The Lord Jesus needs you!!! Don’t let them down!
