ON PRAISE TODAY - 7 APRIL  2019

 

What’s the point of giving up something for Lent ?  William King made his choice, and on Praise today he explains what he’s doing - but has it changed him?

 

And we tackle the subject of homelessness - is it perhaps more than just rough sleeping? Michael Manning of the charity Graih, thinks that’s only a very small part of the problem ….

 

If, after hearing Michael’s interview, you would like to find out more about the work of Graih, you’ll find all the details on their website

 

www.graih.org.im

 

 

Music on PRAISE today is :

The Benedictus

from Gounod’s

St Cecilia Mass

 

and from The Peacemakers by Karl Jenkins

 

Blessed Are The Peacemakers - Matthew 5 Vs 9

 

Healing Light - A Celtic Prayer

 

Anthem - Peace, Triumphant Peace
