Ancient Words

I remember, Lord, your ancient laws, and I find comfort in them. 

Psalm 119:52

Last Sunday Royston Baptist joyfully hosted the Emmanuel College Chorale. They opened the service with the powerful, “The Battle of Jericho” arranged by Moses Hogan and ended the service with the bluegrass Appalachian inspired, “Will the Circle Be Unbroken” arranged by J. David Moore. Before the sermon the Royston Baptist Worship Choir joined them in singing the inspiring, “Ancient Words” by Lynn DeShazo, arranged by Craig Courtney. We were reminded of the power in God’s Ancient words … “words of life, words of hope, give us strength, help us cope.” These holy words passed down through the ages and through sacrifice have the power to change us when we open our hearts to receive this truth. 

It is a joy to be the director of both groups. I appreciate all the work the Worship Choir put in to prepare the combined anthem and host the lovely lunch pasta lunch afterwards for the Chorale. The students loved it!

We have some wonderful music, food, and fellowship coming up in a couple of weeks on October 28th. Please join us in the Family Life Center at 6:00 for a fun family Singspiration. There’s nothing like singing hymns, eating homemade pie and ice cream and being with those you love!

The joy of the Lord is my strength,
