Musicians On Call – using talents for a greater good

I heard an ad for this organization today and thought it sounded really interesting – and it is!

Musicians On Call is a group of artists who donate their talents to people in health care facilities, both through live performances and recorded material.

They give bedside performances, have a CD “pharmacy” of recorded music they provide at no charge to health care facilities, and even help patients record their own music.

What a great way to use a talent to help others! It’s so unique – and makes me wonder about other ways that we can use our gifts for greater good.

Loving our neighbors isn’t just about giving money. And there are many ways to serve others than in a soup kitchen or on a home construction site (two common volunteer activities).

So take a minute today and ponder this: What talents do you have that you could use to serve others?
