Have the Winter Blues? Watch A Music Video & Sing A Psalm

Dear Members & Friends of First Congregational UCC:

We are now almost to the middle
of February with weekly snowfalls
and gray skies.  It's easy to get
the winter blues.  So, maybe
it's time to watch and listen to
listen to a Taize You Tube video,
and here's the link:

What you just watched/listened to is
a Taize Praise Song, "Laudate Omnes Gentes, Laudate Dominum"
which in Latin means, "Sing praises, all you peoples,
sing praises to the Lord."

If you're feeling down or gloomy, hum a tune,
watch/listen to some song on your cell phone
or laptop, or google/read the following

Psalm 43:4-5 "Then I will go to the altar of God,
               to God my exceeding joy; I will praise you
               with the harp, O God, my God.  Why are you
               cast down, O my soul, and why are you
               disquited within me?  Hope in God; for I
               shall again praise God, my help and my God.

Psalm 47:6   "Sing praises to  God, sing praises;
               sing praises to our King, sing praises."

Psalm 66: 1-3  "Make a joyful noise to God, all the earth;
                 sing to the glory of God's name; give God
                 glorious praise.  Say to God, 'How awesome
                 are your deeds!"

Psalm 67:5  "Let all the peoples praise you, O God;  Laudate Omnes Gentes,
              Let all the peoples praise you.         Laudate Dominum!

Psalm 68:32  "Sing to God, O kingdsoms of the earth;
              sing praises to the Lord."

Psalm 108:3  "I will give thanks to you, O Lord,
              among the peoples, and I will sing
              praises to you among the nations."

If you're reading this, I hope you experience
the warmth and light of God's love shining
through some song or psalm.

Keep on singing!
