A blessed New Year to all!! After some rest during the holidays, Brotherhood starts again. It also gave us time to learn/ rehearse new songs as we modify our "play list" to better minister to the various audiences.
A case in point - a men's breakfast (Jan. 24) was a first for us. The song selections were made with much prayer so the ministry would be most effective. Typically, our musical style crosses a congregation's culture but singing to only men - they are a different breed!! Brotherhood was pumped as we sang some classics and added a few new upbeat quartet songs to "test" on this crowd.
Wow... did God ever deliver!! The men rejoiced, clapped, sang along (sometimes) and were very receptive. The breakfast theme was, "The Right Thing - In the Home" and the message shared by Dan focused on that subject. "Give It Away" urged them to share the blessings of God with others and "Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus" reminded the men to depend on Him for all things. The altar call saw men receive salvation and prayer for those seeking healing, financial miracles and a closer walk with our Lord. Once again, we praise God for His faithfulness and being there - all the time!
