All right, so I’m taking “Music that Speaks” where no “Music that Speaks” has gone before. (And yes, I do realize that I’m about to combine Star Trek with Star Wars. I’m also throwing Mary Poppins into the mix. Hey, why not?)
A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, Poppins popped in to visit her friendly neighborhood Ewoks. This is the voyage of Marry Poppins. Her one day mission to exlore a strange new world. To seek out new life and musically inclined teddy bears who were oddly quite eager to give this umbrella toting traveler an earnest earful (Oh yeah, a Spiderman reference also made its first appearance.)
As Endor’s Ewok elders gathered beneath this lush vegetative planet’s mountain range, it’s double moons shone ominously down upon a perplexed Poppins. The tension could be cut with a butter knife. Since all had been told to lower their silverware, Endor’s citizens began to loudly lament their unyielding torments, instead:
“Chim chim churi
Chim chim churi
Chim chim, Choo Doo!” they cried out.
“Three Three mountains
Three Three mountains
Three Three, enough!”
Okay, so it loses a little something in translation, but their lament makes a pretty good point: It’s about time we stopped looking at our mountains so discouragingly. Enough! We have a God who does impossible things.
Three Three MOUNTAINOUS verses:
“And Jesus answered them, “Truly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ it will happen.” –Matthew 21:21
“Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.” –Psalm 46:2-3
“The mountains and hills may crumble, but My love for you will never end; I will keep forever My promise of peace.” So says the Lord who loves you.” –Isaiah 54:10
