The Office Hymn during Morning Prayer at Concordia Theological Seminary’s annual Good Shepherd Institute in Fort Wayne, Indiana, on November 5, 2018, was Lutheran Service Book #793, “Praise My Soul, the King of Heaven.” Stanza 2 was sung by all in harmony. This hymn, based on Psalm 103, is composed by Henry F. Lyte, and the tune is “Lauda Anima,” written by John Goss:

“Praise, my soul, the King of heaven;
To His feet your tribute bring;
Ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven,
Evermore His praises sing:
Alleluia, alleluia!
Praise the everlasting King.

“Praise Him for His grace and favor
To His people in distress;
Praise Him still the same as ever,
Slow to chide and swift to bless:
Alleluia, alleluia!
Glorious in His faithfulness.

“Father-like He tends and spares us;
Well our feeble frame He knows;
In His hand He gently bears us,
Rescues us from all our foes.
Alleluia, alleluia!
Widely yet His mercy flows.

“Angels, help us to adore Him;
You behold Him face to face;
Sun and moon, bow down before Him,
All who dwell in time and space.
Alleluia, alleluia!
Praise with us the God of grace.”

Our simple recordings are done during a holy time and not always able to provide something to view but will let you hear a sample of beautiful, sacred music such as what you might find in an LCMS Lutheran church today. Please understand the limits imposed by small camera microphones… and plan to attend in person and hear Lutheran liturgy yourself.

The essence of every choir singer –

I’ll praise my Maker while I’ve breath,
and when my voice is lost in death,
praise shall employ my nobler powers;
my days of praise shall ne’er be past,
while life, and thought, and being last,
or immortality endures.

How Friendly Is Your Church Really?

This week on our blog at Leaders.Church —

The word nearly EVERY church uses to describe their church is “friendly.” It seems as though everyone thinks they have a really friendly church. No pastor ever tells me their church is grouchy!

But what’s interesting is the #1 reason we hear from people who decide not to go back to a particular church is because the church wasn’t very friendly.

So there’s a disconnect somewhere between the perception of the visitor and the perception of the church people and/or pastor.

The fact remains that a guest who experiences your church may base their decision to return simply on the friendliness of the people…

… so the question is — how friendly is your church really?

Pastors and church leaders can unknowingly give too little emphasis to such an important measurement in the eyes of a visitor or unchurched person, and as a result miss out on a great opportunity to disciple new people who may have stayed.

In this video we share a mindset you need to have as a pastor or church leader, and it all has to do with putting yourself in the visitor’s shoes …

… but we all know to do that, right? Well, hopefully these thoughts will put it in a little different light for you and provide a new perspective for the guest experience at your church.

Be sure to pass this along to your hospitality team, first impressions team, and others who play a role in welcoming visitors to your church.
