Bragging on Friends

Opera is out of my league. To me, it’s like modern art. Interesting is some ways, but I just don’t get it.

Something I do understand and admire is servanthood. Yes, servanthood. The using of one’s abilities in the service of others. Sometimes for money, sometimes it’s fun and sometimes it’s just the right thing to do.

Dr. Scott LaGraff and his wife Kim are classically trained and professionally proven opera singers. They have made their living on the stage. img_0164

When invited by a friend to sing the Lord’s Prayer in the ring of his cattle auction, they accepted and performed with gusto. That’s servanthood: No crying, no list of demands, but a simple and humble willingness to use one’s talents in the service of a friend.
