As part of the 7th Ayr Jazz Festival, our worship will be led tomorrow by the Rae Bros New Orleans Jazz Band. After church last Sunday, in the village of Collioure, we encountered this street band - a very colourful collection of musicians. I had great admiration for the conductor (a fairly diminutive woman) who managed to keep a seemingly unruly bunch in some sort of order. It was clear that these were folks loving what they did.
Hopefully, in our worship tomorrow, we will know some of that exuberance and improvisation as we submit to the orchestration of the divine conductor.
