This week’s prompt: Praise.
Praising God is something the student body at my school values and knows how to do well. We have countless talented students who use their creative abilities to worship God in new ways all the time.
Last night was the annual Ethnefest, the night during our missions conference when students from all over the world danced and sang and spoke to share their cultural heritage with us. At the end, an international choir led us in worship. We sang He Reigns, How Great Is Our God (World Edition), Good Is So Good in various languages, and You Are Good. Students gathered in front of the stage, jumping and shouting for Jesus. The auditorium exploded with praise and adoration of the great God we all love and serve.
It was a powerful thing to witness. What a great gathering of the global family of God!
