The Power of Praise

Rev Frank Van Der Korput preaches on Acts 16 & Joshua 6

Geoff Leslie

This Sunday we welcomed visiting minister Rev Frank Van Der Korput who has been the Chaplain over at Northaven for the past 8 years.  The readings are from Acts 16: 11-12, 19b-28 and Joshua 6: selected verses from 6-27.   Frank's sermon focused on the thought that there is power in singing and praise - 'praise brings life' - singing changes the brain it is known that hormones are released that reduce anxiety and stress. The phrase 'Sing Praise' occurs in the Bible over 50 times. Singing brings us community with others, we are designed by God to sing even before we were born. When we sing praise we put our faith in God, it's not just filling space in the service - Paul & Silas knew & their singing saved not only them but also the Philippian jailer and his family. Praising God helps us to get through our days, doors will be opened, sometimes it's a shout, sometimes only a whisper.

Minister: Rev Frank Van Der Korput

Readings: Acts 16: 11-12, 19b-28 and Joshua 6: selected verses from 6-27
