Savannah United Church celebrate God

Pin It

An evening of Worship and Celebration was held at the Savannah United Church, on Sunday 25th September 2011. All members of the United Church of Jamaica and Grand Cayman participated in the programme.

Synodical Theme: “Renewal and Transformation: Season of Healing and Hope”

Motif: “The Audacity of Hope, Sing and Hope and Pray”

For Reflection: “This is a moral universe, which means that despite all the evidence that seems to the contrary, there is no way that evil and injustice, and oppression and lies can have the last word…this is what has upheld the morale of our people to know that, in the end, “GOOD WILL PREVAIL”. As quoted from Desmond Tutu, South Africa.

After a musical prelude (instrumental) a solo voice walked up the isle singing, “Lift every voice and sing till the Earth and Heaven ring, Ring with the harmonies of liberty…” Grenda Solomon who has a very powerful and beautiful voice beautifully performed this solo.

The programme proceeded with a Psalm of Praise, Prayer of Approach. Rev. Ralph Hoyte led us all in with the singing which was powerfully performed and accompanied by the piano, Steel Pan and drums, all very well performed and the songs chosen for the evening were so appropriate for us today. “Let there be peace on earth” (which we badly need today) “Master the tempest is raging “ “Don’t assume that God’s dismissed you from mind” and each time Rev. Hoyte would lead us into each line by explaining the meaning etc. giving real emphasis to the words. This service was really well done and I wish it could be repeated…Rejoice in the Lord always… Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God – the Audacity to Pray; the Audacity of Hope.

So many beautiful songs were sung but this one I think is the one we need to concentrate on – “Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me”
