Spiritual Retreats and Worship Workshops.

Since returning to Cape Town it has been awesome being invited to teach and facilitate at various church retreats and Worship Workshops and Conferences. Whilst the retreats have only been predominantly for Men's Groups or Ministries within the ambit of Christian Spiritual Formation and male spirituality, I do also enjoy taking couples. Regarding the Worship Workshops, this can either be for the ministry itself, or a worship-leader specific in-depth practical and spiritual workshop. I look forward to hearing from you to discuss the possibilities of us getting this together for your church!

Spiritual Retreats: These range from single-day retreats to, what tends to happen mostly, those that are given over a weekend. I am able to travel should you wish me to do so.

Worship Workshops: Those that tend to work the best are given over the course of a day. Most churches tend toward that being a Saturday. What we deal with is basically discovering our highest calling and how we best serve God within that given our talents, gifting, and leadership abilities for those who have been called to lead. "The power to bless the world around you is a direct result of your ministry to the Lord" (Gerrit Gustafson). In these workshops we speak into what worship is, our calling within it, the anointing, worshipping in "Spirit and in Truth", and, among other areas, worship and the Presence of God. This normally takes until lunch-time. After lunch we get stuck into the practical side of church worship. This moves from instrumentation, vocal, harmonies, utilization of 'light and shade' in what we do, planning worship sets, best key options, and a host of other areas. I always summarise what we have learnt and mail that through in PDF format to each participant. Should you wish me to attend practices after that, I will gladly do so. I look forward to hearing from you in this regard!

Luke 2:10; “I bring you good news of great joy for all the people.”

We’re talking Christmas carols already! Awesome! Just a bit of housekeeping, this will be the last devotional on Facebook so, from tomorrow, they will be up on my website grantnuss.co.za. It has been cool to spend time with you here and have enjoyed your messages on IM in response to these messages. Don’t stop them. So what’s all this about the good news? Evangelist Luis Palau tells of a wealthy European family that decided to have their newborn baby baptised in their mansion. Dozens of guests were invited to the elaborate affair, and they all arrived dressed to the nines. After depositing their elegant wraps on a bed in an upstairs room, the guests were entertained royally. Soon the time came for the main purpose of their gathering: the infant’s baptismal ceremony. But where was the baby? No one seemed to know. The child’s governess ran upstairs and returned with a desperate look on her face. Everyone searched frantically for the baby. Then someone recalled having seen him asleep on one of the beds. The baby was on a bed all right, buried beneath a pile of coats, jackets, and furs! The object of that day’s celebration had been forgotten, neglected, and nearly smothered. The baby whose birthday we celebrate at Christmas is easily hidden beneath the piles of traditions and cultural observances of the season. We need to enter every Advent season asking, “Where’s the baby?” Jesus is the good news. He is the hero, deliverer, and rescuer, and that my friends is good news. How did and does that good news play out in real life? Well, Christ comes to the world, the sinners, the pain, the suffering, the idolatry, the demon possessed, the outcast, the poor, the proud, the arrogant, and the rich, and brings the good news. He is Immanuel, God with us, and, by grace, He is Immanuel in us. Finally, I just love the story of the shepherds in Luke 2:20, how they “returned, glorifying and praising God.” They sing, they celebrate, there is gladness, and joy (why) because there’s good news for you and all the people of the earth. So, not only when we get together to sing carols and have family services etcetera over Christmas do we praise and worship Him for being the news, but every single day of the year and forever it is the life of Christ through us that we want to show forth to the earth. A great song I would love to sing at a Christmas service wherever that will be this year is by the band All Things New entitled “The Good News” – enjoy it by clicking on the link below here! So see you from hereon in on my website! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bH-Wmqpj8Dk
