Easter Service – Sand Art

Here is the full presentation that my church did during the Easter Service.  It is incredible.

It is a story of a son and a father and the Father’s incredible love plus a wayward son.





Easter Thoughts –

4 04 2010
My church’s Easter service used the prodigal son story as the back drop to their service.  We told the story using today’s music and the story from the Bible of a son who got his inheritance from his son, spent all of it, worked in a pig farm, and then came back home to a Father with arms opened wide plus a son who has been there for a long time and didn’t get the importance of the son coming home.  Our pastor then shared what he has learned the last year and that is we need to stay close to God and he then gave an invitation to come home (we don’t give public invitations very often but today’s service was one of those) and we used Come Home Running by Chris Tomlin as the invitation song.   I included these lyrics here but I also hope that people didn’t take away from the service the music, the art or anything else but toke away the extraordinary love of God.
 




the stand…

I heard this song during the Good Friday service in Atlanta and it was incredible..Here are the lyrics:

The Stand

You stood before creation
Eternity within Your hand
You spoke the earth into motion
My soul now to stand

You stood before my failure
Carried the Cross for my shame
My sin weighed upon Your shoulders
My soul now to stand

So what can I say
What can I do
But offer this heart O God
Completely to You

So I’ll walk upon salvation
Your Spirit alive in me
This life to declare Your promise
My soul now to stand

So what can I say
What can I do
But offer this heart O God
Completely to You

So I’ll stand
With arms high and heart abandoned
In awe of the One who gave it all

So I’ll stand
My soul Lord to You surrendered
All I am is Yours

 

This song is great!
