Family Friday

“Be Glorified”

May 22

Jim Ranney and his sons read the Prayer of Saint Francis from West Blue Mounds Lutheran Church. They take turns shouting out a keyword for each verse as they sing “Be Glorified.” #letitshine

“Be Glorified”

In my life, Lord, be glorified, be glorified!
In my life, Lord, be glorified, be glorified today.

In my home, Lord, be glorified, be glorified!
In my home, Lord, be glorified, be glorified today.

In our family, Lord, be glorified, be glorified!
In our family, Lord, be glorified, be glorified today.

In our world, Lord, be glorified, be glorified!
In our world, Lord, be glorified, be glorified today.

 

Prayer of Saint Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace
Where there is hatred, let me sow love
Where there is injury, pardon
Where there is doubt, faith
Where there is despair, hope
Where there is darkness, light
And where there is sadness, joy

O Divine Master, grant that I may
Not so much seek to be consoled as to console
To be understood, as to understand
To be loved, as to love
For it is in giving that we receive
And it’s in pardoning that we are pardoned
And it’s in dying that we are born to Eternal Life

Amen

 


Christ’s Light in Your Life

Family Friday

Youth and Family Minister Jim Ranney talks about light and Christ’s light in your life. Jim and his son Andrew perform a verse from the popular camp song “Pass It On.” #letitshine

“Pass It On”

It only takes a spark to get a fire going,
And soon all those around can warm up in its glowing.
That’s how it is with God’s Love,
Once you’ve experienced it.
You spread His love to everyone,
You want to pass it on.

Verse 1
