The Price of the Gospel


I am thankful that God has opened a new door this week in a memory care wing of a faculty we have been visiting for a while. For those of you who think this is a pointless exercise I would like to encourage you to get involved if you can. Alzheimer’s and dementia effect a small but significant portion of our nursing home community residents. But while memories become spotty the value of the person remains unchanged to our Heavenly Father. We have discovered that love and music in combination can communicate quite effectively the love of Christ!

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.

  1. I have done music ministry in nursing homes, and it’s amazing how otherwise unresponsive patients will suddenly perk up and start singing with you when you sing the old hymns like “Amazing Grace.” I believe that’s coming from their spirits, which are very much alive and well. ❤
