Conference and Concert
Church services every night last week. EVERY NIGHT! They used to do that back in the day in the USA. Americans are too busy now for such committments. :) It was indeed tiring, but some good stuff happens when the body of Christ gathers together for significant amounts of time. I think our church grew during the week...in wisdom and love. On Saturday night during the pre-service rehearsal we had a small explosion. Tempers on the worship team were high...mine included. By God's grace, we were able to settle things down and practice the LOVE messages we'd been hearing all week. Funny how Satan tries to mess up good things...thereby creating opportunities for people to grow up.
THEN, there was a big concert on Sunday afternoon. A group of young people hosted the concert. They had 8 songs ready to go, and invited a group from a neighbor church. It was all good, except that the sound was a bit much for this 44-year-old. They had it under control for parts of the program. The group hosting the concert is called WORSHIP. Many of them are music students of mine. I was delighted to see and hear them playing to the glory of God. We recorded some of it. Haven't looked at it yet.
A highlight of the concert was when the group sang an original song about Haiti's suffering, and implored the Christians of Haiti to 'stand up' because we are the future of the country. They ended the song by singing the chorus again while holding a map of the country. Very creative group of young men and women. May God bless them as they continue to serve Him. They were able to raise a significant amount of money
