“A light bulb went on for me.”
Amy is a saxophone player at an Arkansas high school where I guest-conducted recently. (A fulfilling experience — thanks to RHR, Jr. and his great band!) Amy had not yet thought about the mathematical relationships among tempo markings in wind band music. Her “light bulb moment” — in this case, related to the speed of sound — made me feel somewhat more effective in teaching and leading than I would have otherwise, but it did even more for her, I think.
When was the last time a light went on for you in Bible study, in prayer, in worship, in thought?
