I’m making a shift for tomorrow.
We are changing around our set list a bit.
After the first two christmas carols my pastor will come up and address the tragic massacre in Newtown this past Thursday. We will then go into Jesus Paid It All which we do in a minor key. I didn’t feel like it worked well to go from a time of prayer for those suffering into an up beat/retro swing version of O Holy Night.
If you serve the Lord here in America haven’t in some way made room from the national tragedy that has occurred I encourage you to rethink. When life happens we can’t cling to our plans as if nothing has changed.
Be open to what the Holy Spirit speaks to you. Be open to what the Holy Spirit speaks to your pastor or leadership.
Praise Jesus. Acknowledge suffering. Worship God.
