With A Thankful Heart


About a week ago, our church participated in the community's 'Night of Worship.' This annual event brought all churches, all denominations together. It was marvelous. When we, as people of faith, can put aside our differences and come together as a family, it is a beautiful thing. Because let's face it, in every church, in every community, in every family, there are differences.

Music, which has held a special place in my heart, has been a strong area of praise for me. I'm so thankful for the truly gifted people who are able to move others through lyrics and melody.

A special thank you to my bloggy friend Dana, who provided this amazing photo of what praise and worship can look like! (I am incapable of taking photos at night or in a dark auditorium...) I'm participating in Ann's 'Multitudes On Mondays.'

  2. I wish I could have been there! Hi Suzanne :) I'm so glad I dropped by your little bloggy-home. I love it here! I agree with you about music. God can really use it to work on my heart, too. - - and I love Glorious Day! It made me all happy when I heard it start to play. Thanks so much for "following" me...I'm looking forward to getting to know you better :)

    Have a great day!

  3. Very cool! The only time our churches come together is on Good Friday, and sadly it's not well attended. I would LOVE to have more times of combined worship when we could get past the doctrinal differences and worship Him as the brothers and sisters that we are!

  5. Great post. My pastor talks a lot about unifying as believers. "major on the majors" don't divide on the minors. Have a great week!
