One of those is the power of quiet. Any choir can sing loud. Even those who sing badly often sing loud.
But if you are singing from deeply, even powerfully, from your heart, to someone you love, than often the sound is very soft. Quiet.
Getting a choir to sing softly has often been a challenge as our choir and director have found out. It’s not ease at first. But when it does happen, it is very beautiful. There is a passion that glows within it.
So, where is that beauty in the quiet? Like a Lion tending her cub, the power is there but it's quieted or stilled by love. Want a better picture? The power of God, stilled with nails on a cross… by love.
“Be still and know that I am God.”
