The Blessing: Bay Area

24

More than 100 virtual choirs from nations and cities around the world have produced a phenomenon known as “The Blessing.”

The Citizen will post these multi-national and multi-lingual versions on a regular basis, most based on Numbers 6:24–26:

THE LORD BLESS YOU
AND KEEP YOU;
THE LORD MAKE HIS FACE SHINE ON YOU
AND BE GRACIOUS TO YOU;
THE LORD TURN HIS FACE TOWARD YOU
AND GIVE YOU PEACE.

For the story behind “The Blessing,” read the article in Christianity Today.

From the YouTube description of this video:

May 29, 2020 — During this challenging time worship leaders and others from over 50 churches across the San Francisco Bay Area, representing hundreds more, have united to sing a blessing over our city.

Our desire is that this song bring encouragement and hope as we join others around the world in giving Him honor and glory through the words of this song. May He bless you, keep you, and bring you peace today. He is for you!

Though our physical buildings across our area may be closed during this period of social distancing brought on by the Coronavirus, our churches are open and alive!
