Visiting the Living on Memorial Day

P1010716

On this Memorial Day why not take time visiting a nursing home resident? Did you know that more than 60% of residents will not receive a single visitor this year? While it is good and right to remember the sacrifices of those who have given their lives for our freedom, it is urgent to remember those whom the world has forgotten.

 

Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”   Nehemiah 8:10

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.
