Power In The Blood – Sunday Songs

I’ve been listening to Amy Grant’s various hymns albums.
There are some interesting arrangements that maintain the integrity of the originals, rather than completely changing them.
Power In The Blood is one of the ones that she stays close to traditional.

This is a lyric video, so I’ll leave you to watch the words if you want.
The song uses three verses, there’s at least one other if you look around.

Worship As God’s Work Of Building Up The Church (via Hughes Oliphant Old)

Corporate worship: a divine work, a saving work of God.

It is the Holy Spirit who purifies our worship by his continual work of sanctification. As the Spirit purifies the worshippers, the worship is made pure. When we worship, having our minds enlightened by the Spirit, our lives cleansed by the Spirit, our wills moved by the Spirit, and our hearts warmed by the Spirit, then our worship is transformed from being merely a human work into being a divine work.
Hughes Oliphant Old, Worship, Westminster John Knox Press, 2002, pg 6.

Sweet Potato Noodles

I got a liking for these when we were on a Paleo diet kick.
None of our local Asian stores carried them. I think they may be more of a Korean thing.
Now at Woolwoths. But the packets are a bit on the small side.
