Read: 2 Kings 15:1 – 16:20, Acts 19:13-41, Psalm 147:1-20, Proverbs 18:4-5
Relate: One of the beautiful things about living in another country is the opportunity to become immersed in an entirely new culture and language. It is so eye opening as it challenges me to differentiate between what I believe because it is God’s truth and what I believe because it is part of the cultural presuppositions I have been raised in. Sometimes, especially in the language learning, it can be incredibly frustrating. And sometimes it can be pure, beautiful worship. Yesterday I had the opportunity to be a part of a community of believers as we lifted up our voices in worship sometimes in English and sometimes in Turkish. Using both languages adds a depth and richness to that worship I cannot adequately describe in words. Instead, I am going to fall back on something I have done here at the River Walk a couple times before. Let us join the world in singing praise to our Father…
In English and Visayan:
In Turkish 🙂
In Russian and Korean:
There will come a day when those from every nation, tongue, and tribe will gather around the throne to sing praise in one voice to our God. Will you be a part of that great multitude?

I’ve added it to the others. Thanks.
The world suddenly seems smaller…and the Kingdom larger. Love this.
One of my best worship experiences was when I attended Yoido Full Gospel Church in Seoul. All those voices, multiple languages, singing the same praise songs…I can’t wait until the day when we all get to do it for real (and not just practice) around His throne.
OK. I’m officially jealous. I would love to be able to visit Yoido FGC.
Great experience if you ever get the chance. What you’re experiencing, though, is no less amazing.
Thanks for thinking of afrikaans 😉
