Visiting Mom for Christmas


Why not make plans to visit a nursing home this Christmas? It may be the most valuable Christmas gift that some will receive this year!

New Beginnings

Maybe your first memory of your Mom is her sitting you on her lap to tell you a story. Later it meant coming home from school and smelling cookies baking in the oven.

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
