'Voices Together' sing praise to the Lord

Archbishop joins 12,000 Christians of various denominations in prayer
Thousands gather in Rogers Arena for the multidenominational worship event "Voices Together: Lift High the Name of Jesus" July 1. Sophie Desvaux de Marigny writes that she "experienced a roar for the Lord" through song, dance, and praise. Pamela Ho / Special to The B.C. Catholic.
On Canada Day I experienced a roar for the Lord. Through the singing and dancing and praising of Jesus, I felt God's intentions for me. I was reminded that in every town, and in every corner of the world, Jesus is on trial at this time, and like in a tribunal court, I need to be a witness for Jesus. If the position was reversed and I was unable to practise my religion, would the jury find enough evidence to convict me of being a Christian? For full story see The B.C. Catholic website.
