A lot of people have heard it said that “a picture is worth a thousand words”, but, for the picture below, the one word I want to focus on is . . . passion.
These are just a few members of the Christian Campus House (CCH) worship band. CCH is a campus ministry at Missouri State University. Different members of CCH help lead worship at 8:01, CCH’s weekly gathering, every week. The band roster also changes every week; letting band members share their different talents as well as opening up the selection of songs and and song styles that can be performed.
Picking the picture
When I started looking at pictures of the CCH worship band, I came up with two pictures that were both taken at the last 8:01 of the semester.
Even though the picture on the left shows all of the worship band members, I decided to go with the picture on the right. The angle used in the picture on the right makes the picture seem more dynamic than the picture on the left. The picture on the right also has more consistency in how the members present themselves. The biggest problem that I have with the picture on the right is the empty area above the band members. To fix this, I cropped the empty area out to get the picture at the top of the page.
Passion to perform
The reason I picked the word passion to describe the picture, at the top, is because everyone in the CCH worship band has a passion for performing. Some band members are good singers, a lot play instruments (sometimes more than one), and a lot of the band members do both.
Performing with the band has been a great experience in my college career. I sang a lot in high school, but I have never had the time to join a choir at Missouri State. Being in the CCH worship band has allowed me to continue growing as a singer as well as be inspired by all the other band members who perform. The instrument that looks like a bedpost with baking pans attached to it was actually created by two of the members in the band.
A picture may be worth a thousand words, but, when I see the picture above, one word is enough for me.
