Bethel music came to Kelowna this week for an evening of worship. We were invited to dinner with the band to share what is happening in Kelowna and to pray with them before the evening. They are a great group of people, serving graciously, living within a culture of honour and genuine worshippers. I love their humble heart and their desire for people to enter into true worship.
We have a lot to be thankful for with Bethel music. For me especially, when I hear their music playing from downstairs in the teenage department!
Hundreds of people packed out the church, worshippers of all denominations. Corporate worship is a heavenly concept and one we are all called to engage in. God loves those who worship in spirit and truth. Not because we sing in a certain way. Or we say particular spiritual words. Or raise our hands at that moment.
No. Worship is a heart response, and when the worshippers gather in all of their styles and expressions – Heaven is released.
We… our cities are changed.
Worshipping together. Let us not forsake it.
Phil and I sat on a deserted beach this week to pray – because that’s what we do. The still water, dancing with diamonds and our ever present mountains provided an inspiring backdrop as we prayed for our families, church, city, YOU...As much as corporate prayer and worship is essential, so is individual. Investing our lives in prayer and listening to God, changes us and our world.
It needs to be our priority. Let us not forsake it.
The rather well known British secret service agent made an appearance at our church kickoff this week.
Bond. Arriving in style on the 1967 50cc.
I love kickoff and the re-dedication alongside the new. This year will see a house of prayer, pursuing His presence, seeking inner transformation. It all sounds very inward Michelle…We believe that a life of serving and loving and outward living is the true response of worship, personal prayer and inner transformation.
Bond was challenged by YWAM natives who had taken over the island.
