We had a very satisfying worship service yesterday. By that I mean, as we sang, listened and prayed together, we drank deep of God’s grace in the gospel, the kingdom, and the power of the Spirit. Amen!
We sang a new song yesterday called “Father of Lights” by Josh Davis, the head of Proskuneo Ministries. Here’s their mission statement: “Proskuneo Ministries exists to glorify God promote unity in the body of Christ through multilingual multicultural worship gatherings, worship resources, and training of believers…”
“Father of Lights” was recorded by Nikki Lerner’s church, Bridgeway Community in Maryland. We based our performance on that recording. The song is based on James 1:17 and has a theme of Thanksgiving. It also features phrases in Swahili, Spanish, Arabic, and Korean. This was my first time singing in Korean, and a Korean friend after church told me that we actually sang the phrase correctly! I give all the credit to copying Nikki singing it correctly on the recording because I just copied her.
Here’s the place to buy the recording. If you would like the music, you should contact Josh Davis via
We also sang a medley of “I Give Myself Away” and “I Surrender All” which came off very well. My friend, Rich Rankin had the idea and requested that we sing it that way. Rich has a son who was born with severe defects to his throat and they are talking him to see a specialist this week. These songs have been a bit of a theme in Rich’s life these days.
