I’ve uploaded four more videos of the singing at Synod 2012.
The first two songs, “Praise Jehovah, All Ye Nations” and “Not What My Hands Have Done,” were chosen by delegates on the spur of the moment Tuesday morning. While the ballots for synodical officers were being counted, chairman pro tem. Rev. Kuiken directed a quick song service. “We have some time to kill. Could I have a number?” These two songs were the first selections.
231, “Praise Jehovah, All Ye Nations”
389, “Not What My Hands Have Done”
Later on Tuesday, at the beginning of the evening session, Rev. Steve Arrick of the Zeltenreich URC in Lancaster County, PA, led opening devotions with the singing of number 1, “That Man Is Blest.”
For Friday morning’s devotions, Rev. Paul Murphy of Messiah’s Reformed Fellowship in Manhattan gave a pointed and convicting address to the delegates on the need for constant evangelism. Following his message, the group sang number 36, “The Ends of All the Earth Shall Hear.”
More videos will be coming soon!
