Today was the day that we were testing out our worship leading with songs. Our three teams came up with three different selection of songs based on the themes given to us. The only drawback was that there were Chinese songs. For Otniel and me, we were trying to understand the
incomprehensible, unfathomable Chinese characters.
After each time of song leading, we were evaluated by the two nice men from New Heart Music Ministries Ltd. to further improve our time we can use for God. Adding rhythm, knowing when to add and even playing the different pitch/tempo/notes mattered to help in our sessions that we might conduct in the future.
Another point was to link the songs to the sermon so that the songs are related and applicable for the congregation. We would definitely take that into account in our preparation for our upcoming mission trip.
During the afternoon, we discussed the book of the Westminister Shorter Catechism and Preacher Gideon went through with us by kindly reading aloud all the 107 questions while we answered them to help us go through and understand the answers and their Scripture references. We understood more about the basics of our faith and the Catechisms that help to define it so that we will know what is Orthodox and what is Liberal.
Soli Deo Gloria,
