Our church band, Becoming Worship, was one of many bands and artists who took part in the Arena this past weekend at a praise and worship event organised by churches across Geneva. I was blessed to be there for a few hours. Arriving, my thoughts were to sit back, soak up the music and let the Spirit do the rest.
I brought my camera along to take a few pictures of the kids who had a special event on the big stage. God knows my love for photography – I ended up enjoying the music, praise and worship and was privileged to also spend some fun time behind the camera lens taking pictures (even back stage courtesy of a special pass from one of our church band members). It was a great few hours (see some pictures below – first three of Becoming Worship and remaining two of other performers).
‘’ It is good to praise the LORD and make music to your name, O Most High, proclaiming your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night, to the music of the ten-stringed lyre and the melody of the harp ’’- Psalm 92:1-3, New International Version (NIV)
‘’The trumpeters and musicians joined in unison to give praise and thanks to the LORD. Accompanied by trumpets, cymbals and other instruments, the singers raised their voices in praise to the LORD and sang: “He is good; his love endures forever.” Then the temple of the LORD was filled with the cloud, 14 and the priests could not perform their service because of the cloud, for the glory of the LORD filled the temple of God ’’ – 2 Chronicles 5:13-14 , New International Version
“Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness; come before Him with joyful songs. Know that the Lord is God. It is He who made us, and we are his people, the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations”, Psalm 100, New International Version
