Nothing But the Blood on 01.29.12

This weekend we celebrated the holy sacrament of communion, which is always a highlight.  To gather around the bread and cup – remembering what Jesus did and reminding ourselves of what Jesus does – is at the center of what it means to be a Christian.

We began with a new song Here and Now, and the great hymns Praise to the Lord the Almighty and And Can it Be.  And then Darren Whitehead guided us into communion by giving us a few minutes to “examine our hearts” and prepare ourselves.  In this space, Becky and Sharon sang and spoke this moving hymn over us…

After receiving communion together, we stood and sang the second half of “And Can it Be”…

No condemnation now I dread;
Jesus, and all in him, is mine;
alive in him, my living Head,
and clothed in righteousness divine,
bold I approach th’ eternal throne,
and claim the crown, through Christ my own.
Amazing love! How can it be
that thou, my God, should die for me?

  1. I visited Willow on Good Friday three years ago following the sudden death of my younger sister, we sang this song, Nothing But The Blood of Jesus, we sang it slowly and with great reverence and with great awareness of each word. I, and my family, have been attending ever since. I thank you every time we sing it.
