My Early Christmas Offering

Okay I confess I love Christmas so much that I have been busy decorating our home, preparing for a family visit still a month away and have already been listening to Christmas music! So if you are ready here is an early offering to my readers of a lovely song I have been so blessed by from Keith and Kristyn Getty titled ; “In the Bleak Midwinter” This is such a lovely gentle song. My prayer for you today is that in this pandemic of panic that tries to grip our hearts and tear away at all that is good and pure that you will find as you listen with me a center of peace found only as we worship our king who gently came to the manger on a bleak midwinter day!

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. “In the Bleak Midwinter” was the closing song for the annual Christmas program at the school I attended from 4th-12th grade. It was sung as a prayer, and it was some years before the meaning of that last verse really hit home. ❤

    1. So since I have never heard this before I assumed it was composed by Kristyn Getty but now looking into it I see this is over a hundred years old. Wow and the words based on a poem from one of my favorite poets Christina Rosetti. Thanks for sharing
