On Friday, the 3rd of November, people from various churches came together on the rugby field of Piet Retief High School, Worshipping and glorifying the name of God.
It was a unique and very joyful occasion. The purpose of this meeting was to draw people from various denominations together to glorify the name of God as one body of Christ. The band was put together by various people from different churches in Piet Retief and people worshipped in Zulu, English, Afrikaans and German.
Very seldom does a town experience such unity. For many years, faithful prayer has gone up to Our Father in Heaven, preparing the soil and softening the hearts for peace and unity in this town. At the One-Experience Worship Event, a call was made for man-made walls to come down between different racial groups, between different churches, but especially inside our own hearts. “Where the church is divided, the nation will be divided,” were words spoken from the stage.
Towards the end of the event, it felt like walls were literally starting to crumble as people sang and danced in unison like children before the Lord. With hoarse voices, sore feet, but happy hearts, it was time to call it a day! We look forward to the next One Experience Worship event sometime next year. We want to thank all people, who contributed in so many different ways, making this event possible. A big thank you to Piet Retief High School for providing their sports field.
Thank you also to Eschem for the donation of palettes that were used during the event. Most of all we want to give honour and glory to our Father in Heaven for providing the finances that we needed to host this event and especially for what He is doing in the hearts of people of our town. May His name be glorified!
