Power to Love



Modet, kraften og evnen til at elske og videregive sin kærlighed får man i et ligeværdigt samvær med andre. Det er noget af det musikken kan give os .... Power to love.

Ansgars Kirkens Ungdomskor, Aalborg synger Power to Love af Tina Buchholtz.
 
Power to Love

Once I was lonely and I walked alone.
Couldn’t find my way,
my heart was growing blind.
Then You walked along with me,
and You moved the stone.
Carrying my load my pain was left behind.

‘Cause You give me the power to love
so I can give my heart away.
Sometimes I’m weak, sometimes I’m strong,
but now I know, I know the way.
‘Cause in my soul You put a light of mine,
And in the darkness it will shine.
'Cause You give me the power.
Power to love.

One can be hurt so much that the door is locked.
Wouldn’t open the door  
afraid of what to see.
Then You walked along with me
and You found the key.
Showing me You care my soul, my heart is free. 

You give me the power to love ...

In life there is joy.
In life there is pain. Then there is sorrow then happiness.
Some days are in sun.
Some days are in rain
Some days are in sorrow some in happiness
But no matter what I know,
the light of love will shine.

‘Cause You give me the power to love
so I can give my heart away.
Sometimes I’m weak, sometimes I’m strong,
but now I know, I know the way.
‘Cause in my soul You put a light of mine,
And in the darkness it will shine.
‘Cause You give me the power.
Power to love.

Spring is born




Reaching for the sun

Like the first beam of the sun
sends the promise of a whole new day.
A child is born into the light
with the power to give love away.

Like the rose under the snow
holds the promise of the spring in May.
A child is born into the light
with the power to give love away.


(From the song 'Hallelujah' - Power to Love)

Konfirmander og kirkekor

Det blev en skøn dag i Hellevad Kirke i Klokkerholm, Vendsyssel.
20 konfirmander og 10 kirkekor-sangere havde sammen med deres to organister g korledere sat hinanden i stævne i lørdags (13. marts) og inviteret undertegnede til sammen med min pianist Henrik Tue Bjerg lave en gospel-workshop med efterfølgende koncert.

Det blev en vidunderlig dag med melodier inspireret af det oprindelige rå afro-amerikanske udtryk samt den lyse og noget lettere skandinaviske tone. Og udenfor kunne vi nye pauserne i den første skarpe forårs-sol, der fik isen og sneen til at smelte.

Det er så livsbekræftende at arbejde med netop denne gruppe af unge, der er så fulde af liv. Dejligt at mærke at vi på en gang kan være seriøse og løsslupne sammen. For sådan en dag handler for mig meget om at opbygge fællesskaber - opbygge et fælles kulturelt fundament - det højner vores forståelse af og respekt for hinanden.

De unge mennesker tog solen med ind i kirken og efter en intensiv arbejdsdag lavede de alletiders koncert for de 100 publikummer så der også der opstod et fællesskab.
