Ready for a funny story? A couple sundays ago at church, our Pastor was teaching Joshua and the battle of Jericho. Mid sermon he demonstrated how the Israelites blew the shofar horn prior to the wall falling, proclaiming their victory even before the wall fell. Pretty amazing. At the end of the service, I’m gathering my things and greeting people and I notice my missing husband. Then I hear it, a pretty loud blast of that horn! Yep, his trumpet playing days may be over, but he was chomping at the bit to blow that shofar! So our Pastor invited him to blast it in all three services the following week and it was pretty thrilling, especially imagining what kind of freedom and deliverance it was meant to declare!
“When the trumpets sounded, the army shouted, and at the sound of the trumpet, when the men gave a loud shout, the wall collapsed…”
you called it- funny story! this is exactly something my hubby would do! (also a former trumpet, trombone, and baritone player!)
Dang! That verse at the end got me pumped up!
It's funny, my dad is a trombone player and he was asked to blow the shofar one time at our church too! It was amazing to me how powerful a sound it was considering it is just a horn. You can really feel God in it. I think you really have to be a horn player to blow that thing too! Ha ha!
