Six of us from Knox were privileged to be a part of the 2012 Worship Conference today at Redeemer University College.
Hundreds of people lifted songs of adoration, confession and thanksgiving to our gracious and good God. Brian Doerksen, a Canadian song writer and worship leader/equipper, sang and spoke in a humble and moving way of worship as our surrender to God and our receiving of God's provisions for our lives.
I was introduced to a song I had never sung before - Welcome to a Place of Level Ground. United in joy and gratitude to God for his love and favour to us in Jesus Christ we experienced a rich sense of God's presence in the morning worship.
Listen and be blessed.
I have never sang 'Abide with me' with such depth and meaning - all seven verses. A pastor friend told me he was weeping. I understood.
We had workshops ranging from Growing as a Worshipper to Growing up Worshippers. There was Worship as a Lifestyle as well as Embracing all the styles of Music in Worship. 27 workshops spread over 3 sessions.
We learned a lot. The worship of God in song was moving and real. We worshipped Jesus Christ, the only God of grace, in the power of the Spirit.
