Debate: Hymns or Praise

Time for another debate folks, and this time it’s all about worship, given that that links in well with the last devotional we posted – do you prefer traditional style hymns, or are you more of a modern praise song person? Vote in the poll, share your views in the comments – debate, discuss, share…

Full Volume Worship

“I will praise you, Lord, with all my heart” Psalm 9:1 If you go to one of those trendy modern churches with a praise band, or a big worship event you may have noticed they tend to put a sound restricting plastic enclosure around the drumkit to reduce the amount of noise coming from it.…

Stained Glass Masquerade

Casting Crowns wrote a song ‘Stained Glass Masquerade’ about how, in general, Christians are very good at disguising how they are. We don’t like to admit our weakness, out of fear that others will look down on us. We live thinking we are the only one going through whatever we are going through, that no-one…

Albany

Just wanted to let you know what I’d be up to over the next few weeks. I’m going out to Albany, New York with a team from the Down and Dromore Church of Ireland Youth Department to help out at the Beaver Cross Christian Summer Camp. There are eight of us heading out, we leave…

Debate: Harry Potter

Time for something a little different – a debate! Evryone loves a good debate every now and again, right? And with it being summer and people having more time to get invovled in random internet discussions, we thought we’d run a few debates here. And with the new Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince…

Somebody Sold Me

It’s the weekend, it’s been a tiring week (at least it has for me Summer Madness, Commissioning Service banter and late nights at friend’s houses have restricted my sleeping time, and a number of early morning starts haven’t helped either) and so I figured All4God could do with a nice relaxing post. So in true…

Not Forgotten

Have you ever had an experience when you have totally forgotten someone who you should know? I was at Summer Madness last weekend, talking to a (male) friend before going to see SixStarHotel play -if you haven’t heard of them do a search for them, they rock!. Another (female) friend of his came over and…

Local Music Tour

 Here at All4God we like music a lot. If it is decent Christian music we like it even more. And if it is from a local band we fully love it. Which is why we are pretty excited about a forthcoming tour featuring not one, not two but THREE great fresh new local Christian bands…

Wonderful Privilege

   Ephesians 3:7 "By God’s special favour and mighty power I have been given the wonderful privilege of serving him by spreading this Good News." That is Paul, writing to the Ephesians. Note how he describes his calling to spread the Good News (a calling that is made to all of us in the Great…

Unity in the Body

This weekend is summer madness weekend, and I’m away at the King’s Hall with thousands of other Christians at Northern Ireland’s biggest Christian youth festival. Here’s a devotion I wrote at it last year, and hopefully over the next few weeks I’ll be able to share some stuff I’ve written at this year’s Summer madness…
