I love the image of the Incarnation, found in some early Christian writings, of Jesus as a powerful singer with a fine voice and perfect pitch who joins a discordant choir (humanity) and transforms it from within. The American Theologian and Writer: Richard Mc Brien, explains this further when he says ‘It is not that Jesus gave us a completely different set of songs to sing. He helped us understand, enhance and perform our standard repertoire in an entirely new and beautiful way’
