Sharing in "The Blessing"

From John Opina, our Divisional Music Director:

You may have seen the song “The Blessing” floating around YouTube or Facebook, both by various churches/cities/countries as they show a unified belief in God. How awesome would it be for us, as a Division, to participate in this way. Would you be willing to join in this project?

You don’t have be a singer or musician to participate! If you want to dance then dance! If you want to make a painting during the song, then paint! Perhaps some ASL…do it! You can even just speak the words as they fit into the song. It would be great to get Gresham represented, families present, KIDS!, even different languages together as we sing this song of prayer and blessing to one another.

If you haven’t heard the song before, here’s the original version:

Here’s an example from the UK, which includes The Salvation Army!

What will you need?

Headphones to listen to the music

Video camera/Phone camera to record yourself singing, playing, dancing, etc.

Drop it in DropBox with your name and Gresham Corps/Church

Remind App

Please help us keep you informed by signing up for the Remind App. Simply follow the directions. The goal is to touch base with a newsletter once a week and avoid 25 responses to a group text. This is a secure way for us to do this.
