Ring the Bell!

There are times in each of our lives that rain falls, hard times come and it helps to reach out to our friends and to our God for a little support. This is the place to express those needs, concerns and situations so others in the AAPK family can keep you in their prayers.

Ring the Bell!

Post by Mumbleypeg » Wed Mar 25, 2020 5:32 pm

During this pandemic our rural church has canceled Sunday services. But individual church members have begun taking turns ringing the church bell every day at 6 PM, for 30 seconds. Followed by a reading of Psalm 91 and a prayer for our world.

We invite all to join in, by ringing the bell at your church or ringing a bell at your home (keeping appropriate “social distancing” of course). This is something you can do individually or as a family.

May God be with us, comfort us and keep us safe during this time. Amen.

Ken

Sounds good Ken! Thanks to you & your church! ::handshake::

I don't think I own any bells but I have been & will continue to pray for all AAPK members that the lord will watch over us throughout this whole mess. ::tu::

Hope Y'all don't mind .. .... ..


Ring them bells yea heathen
From the city that dreams
Ring them bells from the sanctuaries
Cross the valleys and streams
For they're deep and they're wide
And the world's on it's side
And time is running backwards and so is the bride
Ring them bells
Ring them bells
Ring them bells
Ring them bells!
Ring them bells Saint Peter
Where the four winds blow
Ring them bells with an iron hand so the people will know
That the rush hour is now on the wheel
And the plow and the sun is going down
Upon the sacred cow
Ring them bells
Ring them bells
Ring them bells
Ring them bells
Ring them bells Saint Martha for the poor man's son
Ring them bells so the world will know that God is one
For the shepherd is asleep where the willows weep
And the mountains are filled with little lost sheep
Ring them bells for the blind and the deaf
Ring them bells for all of us who are left
Ring them bells for the chosen few
Who would judge the many when the game is through
Ring them bells for the time that flies,
For the child that cries when
Innocence dies
Ring them bells Saint Catherine
From the top of the room
Ring them bells from the fortress
From the lilies that bloom
For the lines they are long
And the fighting is strong
And they're breaking down the distance
Between right and wrong
Ring them bells
Ring them bells
Ring them bells
Ring them bells!

i woke last night to the sound of thunder
how far off i sat and wondered
started humming a song from nineteen sixty two
aint it funny how the night moves

They are definitely easier on the eyes, and most would say on the ears too. But very few can write like Bob Dylan. This song is another of his gems. From your post I thought you were referring to the lyrics. ::tu::

My apologies for derailing your thread, Ken.

I did think the words to be appropriate, regardless of writer or performer.
