Getting to Sing by Christmas


Oh sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord , all the earth! Psalm 96:1 ESV

It seems that the door is just beginning to reopen to nursing home ministry if only just a crack. I cannot yet go into a facility nor can the residents come out. But what we were able to do was meet outdoors with those in the Senior living units that surround the main building. Please pray with us that no matter the results of the election that in some safe way that we will be able to sing for our dear friends by Christmas. We can and do send cards and have already raised money to purchase about thirty large print Advent devotionals to give. What is on my heart is to have opportunity to sing Christmas carols in person even if we cannot hug or even shake hands. Thanks for your prayers encouragement and ideas. Today the video includes Have Thine own Way, some clips from our meeting last Saturday and O How I Love Jesus. God bless you and have a great weekend.

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. Bless you and your dear friends. Music is something I would consider “essential,” especially in worship.
    We live across the street from a condo complex, and sometimes when I’m on my porch singing with my guitar, one of the residents (in her 80’s) comes over and sits about 15 feet from me, and listens. We chat and say a prayer together, and then she goes back. We’ve been able to enjoy our friendship throughout the pandemic. I hope winter takes its time getting here.

    1. Winter here is what helps us making plans to get something outdoor going. Wow that is wonderful. So happy to hear the neat things God does through different people. Last Saturday it was still nearly 90 during that outdoor prayer service. Next week it may get to 80 and perfect weather. God bless you and thank you for the prayers.
