“For us to be effective in ministry we have to start with ourselves and allow the hope and beauty of God’s amazing grace to penetrate the depths of our own hearts.”
A few years back I asked my friend for a song writing challenge, she asked me to write a lament, a song to minister to and encourage a church facing a national disaster, neither of us had any inkling of the terrible pandemic of Covid-19 coming our way but God did. Church Arise! is the song that resulted and inspired this album and book.
As lock-down hit I felt an urgency in my spirit that this was the time to share these songs and write this book. This book and album journeys with the listener/reader through understanding and experiencing the incredible love of Jesus in their own lives, helping people to grow in their relationship with God and to delight and revel in his grace and amazing freedom in their lives and then to be able to be outward looking and to share the hope of Jesus with the world!
“O church arise, Go to the hurting, tend to the broken,
O church arise, Go feed the hungry, welcome the lonely,
O church arise, Go show the Lords peace, cry out for justice,
O church arise, In the name of Jesus”
