Reflections on worship at ICGB 2018
Published on September 5, 2018
It was a brilliant to experience the different styles of worship as different fellowships led us each morning. The creative ways in which the Fruit of the Spirit theme and the exhortations were shared was amazing. It was wonderful having a sense of how each Fellowship had their own special flavour in praising our great God. So many languages, yet in harmony, worshipping one God.
In the evening Rev Dr Kuzipa Nalwamba was an inspiring speaker. She was very clear in her teaching on John 15, having the passage read every night. We received new insights daily without Christ we can do nothing, we need to be constantly abiding in the vine. When we are available to serve Him in humility, we will produce fruit which will last. We must not fear the pruning as this helps us to bear more fruit. Fruitfulness is the outward proof of being connected. We cannot allow division to come into our midst. When we are divided we cannot be fruitful. Each one is called for His work but we must allow God to lead us all.
The voices and singing of the African choir (some with babies on their back!) who enhanced our worship throughout the week, was beautiful. God was very present in our midst. I loved the spontaneity of dancing and the singing. Very African! It’s always amazing to be in the midst of GB Officers from all around the world but all worshiping the same Lord with one voice & one heart.
I was blessed indeed at ICGB.
