Worship Interludes: Despacio [Episode 25, April 25, 2017]

Despacio.   Spanish for “slow” or “slowly”.

My life has been a whirlwind the past few weeks.   I’ve traveled a lot – some for business, some for pleasure, some for family.   Every day away is a day behind when you’re super busy.  (And busy is no longer a badge of honor in my book).

Yesterday’s interlude was super sweet.  And guess what?  I decided to just keep it for myself.  It’s not going to be published.   So today I sat down and felt a bit hurried and rushed.  The word that came to me?  “Despacio”.  Slow down.

I hope you’ll take a deep breath and slow down today.   I bet you need it.

For anyone reading these show notes, I’d love to hear from you.  Would you be so kind as to comment or leave a note on my Facebook page or leave a review on iTunes?

Worship Interludes: In Death and Life (Episode 24, April 20, 2017)

As I played today’s interlude I was pondering this beautiful lyric as I reflect on the passing of my dear father-in-law who slipped from this earth into the glorious realm of heaven yesterday.   We are sad, we have sorrow and grief, yet we celebrate his homecoming and experience loss with the assurance of God’s great love.

In the popular Christian worship song, “One Thing Remains” there is a portion of lyrics that proclaim “in death, in life, I’m confident and covered by the power of Your great love”.

Perhaps you have loss, sorrow, and grief in your life.  I pray that as you listen to this interlude you release those feelings in prayer and allow peace and love to flood your soul.

Peace and blessings,
Fred
