We purposefully set aside a time within the event to minister to God's children, the "Bride of Christ". What happened was more than I could have ever hoped for. Not only was the aisle filled with people seeking healing prayers, the band also took time to minister to each other. No matter what our plans were, GOD'S PLANS WERE MORE IMPORTANT...and we knew and respected that. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
As most of you know, I don't shy away from using technology in worship. This past Friday night may have been the best use of technology ever. If you're not familiar with Skype, it's a simple video chat program that allows you to see & talk to people all over the world at no cost to you. With that in mind, I have a dear friend in Arkansas that has recently been going through some serious medical issues. I really felt like it would be a great opportunity to have her enter into the evening with us. So, after several failed attempts to get audio, we discovered that the mute button was pushed, fixed that, & we were off. There may be no more powerful words of encouragement than hers as to the power that this Night of Worship displayed. With her permission, here are a few excerpts from her e-mails that night & the following morning.
