Messiah by Handel

 We usually associate  Messiah with Christmas, but Handel , son of a barber-surgeon, wrote it for Easter.
He drew the lyrics from Scripture, choosing passages that tell the story of God sending Jesus to earth to redeem His people.

Weekend Words from Hebrews

a plea for hospitality and care for the suffering #Hebrews#prisoners#TimChester

Hebrews 13:1-3 ,ERV

Worship That Pleases God

Continue loving each other as brothers and sisters in Christ. 
Always remember to help people by welcoming them into your home. Some people have done that and have helped angels without knowing it. 
Don’t forget those who are in prison. Remember them as though you were in prison with them.
And don’t forget those who are suffering. Remember them as though you were suffering with them.
