Thankful Friday

What a better way to end off Good Friday than with some good music….for the soul.

Collin Hopley entertained the congregation of the Moravian Church in the southern most Mission Station in South Africa, Elim. He launched his 2nd CD with an amazing display of local talent which left us breathless…at the end of the night the saying “music is a piece of art, it goes through the ears straight to the heart.”- really rang true to this perfect evening.

It is definitely well with my soul after the concert on Friday night featuring the man of the evening Colin Hopley playing a few songs off his new album, he was accompanied by the various choirs within the Moravian Church of Elim.

Each song had a different story, my favourite was the Elim Junior Koor who sang It’s a small World and For the beauty of the earth, the voices of angels all for the glory of God. Children are the future and seeing them use their talents gives one hope and like the title of the songs, we do live on a beautiful earth with beautiful people and if we use our gifts and are thankful like music it definitely brings people together and makes one realise how small the world really is.

The underlying theme of the evening was that we should believe that GREATER things are coming, seeing that it was Good Friday and after 3 days the Resurrection of Jesus was upon us it was a perfect theme….GREATER things indeed.

Wishing you all a Happy Easter with friends and family – much love.

Want so lief het God die wêreld gehad, dat Hy sy enniggebore Seun gegee het, sodat elkeen wat in Hom glo, nie velore mag gaan nie, maar die ewige lewe kan hê. – John 3:16
