Israel Houghton highlights the greatest Gospel commandment with his latest album, Love God. Love People, out on August 31.

The Lord Is My Shepherd – A Psalm of David

1 The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
2 He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
3 He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness
for his name’s sake.

4 Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
forever.


BOOT CAMP – Army of God

Inilah hari yang kutunggu-tunggu setelah beberapa minggu, akhirnya tiba juga

Surabaya – Waktu menunjukkan pukul 06.17 dan saat itu aku belum mngetahui bagaimana caraku bisa berangkat ke Jatim Expo. Kucoba pikirkan banyak cara hingga kutemui seorang anak yg bernama Calvin. Ia memberiku saran untuk menanyakan pada Fea, nunutan Calvin menuju Jatim Expo. Puji Tuhan aku masi mendapat tempat. Akhirnya, kuselesaikan persiapanku sembari menunggu jam 9 untuk berangkat ke tempat kami bertemu di Satelite Eagle. Mendekati pukul 9, kuambil handukku dan masuk dalam kamar mandi. Setelah aku usai mandi, aku sesegera mungkin keluar dan mencari becak untuk menuju ke tempat pertemuan kami. Pas waktu naik ke becak, ngga lama setelah itu turunlah hujann.. Puji Tuhan! Karena aku sudah menemukan becak.. 10rb kuambil dari dompetku, “makasih pak” sahutku saat tiba di perhentian. Lari..lari..lari.. Pas mobil ko Felix, kakak laki2 Fea datang.. Segeralah masuk dalam mobil dengan keadaan sedikit kehujanan.. Yg penting bersyukur bisa berangkat.. Menunggu Calvin beberapa saat lalu kita berangkat. Dalam perjalananpun sempat melihat Eddo dan ce Ester naik motor. Setibanya di Jatim Expo, segeralah kita menaruh tas di atas dan mengikuti ibadah Army of God.. Waktu itu dilayani oleh ko Philip dengan tema awal “Kitab Wahyu”.

Seusai firman Tuhan, aku mengajak Calvin untuk bantu aku menjaga stand BOOT CAMP.. Peserta dari satelit Eagle sendiri mencapai hingga 87 peserta. Akhirnya ibadahpun selesai dan peserta segera keluar mencari dan melakukan registrasi.. Ratusan orang memenuhi stand2 yang ada membuat udara menjadi panas. Ya inilah saatnya BOOT CAMP Pemuda Pekerja. Akhirnya selama 1jam registrasi sudah hampir selesai. Dalam kurang waktu 35menit sebelum berangkat, aku mengajak Calvin untuk makan siang terlebih dahulu. Kami masukkan tas dalam bis dan nasi campur di sebuah warteg menjadi pilihan kami. Usai makan kami kembali, namun saat melihat nomer bis, ternyata yang kami naiki adalah bis 7 sedangkan kami harusnya di bis 1.. Astagaaaa.. Segera kami turun dan membawa barang kami ke bis 1 di urutan paling belakang.. Continue reading


Grow, Increase, Travelling…

Surabaya22 April 2011, the day that Eagle Feather is growing up, increase and travelling hahaha..^^

Hari ini adalah hari libur nasional sehubungan dengan Wafat Isa Almasih “Jumat Agung”.  Pagi-pagi kusiapkan diriku untuk berangkat dan mengikuti’i ibadah Jumat pagi pukul 07.00 karena pulangnya uda ada planning lagi selanjutnya..

Ibadah pagi kali ini berlangsung berbeda dengan biasanya. Ada persembahan drama dari anak-anak Creative Ministry dengan judul “Pinocchio – Ciptaan Baru.” Yang menceritakan sebuah boneka kayu yang dapat bergerak dan berbicara bernama “Pinocchio”. Pino suatu ketika bertemu dengan “Jimmy Jangkrik” (diperankan oleh Felix). Jimmy mengatakan bahwa Pino bukanlah manusia dan hanyalah sebuah boneka kayu. Pino tidak terima dan mempertanyakan kepada papa Geppetto.

Saat mengetahui kebenarannya bahwa ia hanyalah sebuah boneka kayu, ia tidak dapat menerimanya dan lari dari rumahnya. Padahal papa Geppetto mengasihinya seperti anaknya sendiri. Akhirnya Jimmy memberitahukan bahwa ada peri biru yang dapat mengubahnya ke dalam bentuk normal. Pino pun mengajak Jimmy menemaninya menempuh perjalanan..

Sidney Mohede

Sidney Mohede is widely recognized as one of the most influential worship leaders and Christian songwriters in Indonesia today. His songs and powerful-yet-intimate worship leading have left an indelible mark as they helped to transform and propel the country’s praise and worship music.

Sidney received Christ as a teenager in Los Angeles and had started leading worship for the youth group of a local church in southern California. In 1995, after a decade of living in the United States, he answered God’s call to return to the city of his birth, Jakarta, where he found the true purpose of his musical gifts and talents. Eager to plant himself in a local Body of Christ, he joined a fledgling fellowship called Jakarta Praise Center Youth Ministry (JPCYM).

Since his return to Indonesia, Sidney has recorded, produced or been involved in over 35 albums. Many are from his previous band Giving My Best (GMB) albums; while more than a dozen are albums done with the worship team True Worshippers. A prolific songwriter, he has also written/co-written more than 200 songs.

As of 2008, Sidney was signed as one of the songwriters under the umbrella of Insight Unlimited Publishing, and in 2011, Insight Unlimited Publishing has partnered with three most prominent music publishing companies in the world today: EMICMG Publishing (covering North America), Brettian Publishing (covering Africa), and KI Publishing (covering Australia, New Zealand and Europe).
