As a result of the Coronavirus, Glen Penfold's Christian band, "Breeze" (who normally work at Walton Methodist Church), have been unable to meet.
However, Glen has tried to continue his own music ministry, and has embarked on a journey to try to write one Christian song per month for 2020, in response to an invitation from Resound Worship. *
Around 180 Christian songwriters signed up to each submit a new song every month to invite comment from each other. Glen has found it very encouraging to get constructive and helpful comment from songwriters in UK, USA and Europe.
*(Further details about Resound Worshop can be found at: https://www.resoundworship.org/page/About_Resound_Worship. )
It occurred to him that the Circuit might like to be aware of the song that he has submitted for the April challenge which, from feedback he's received, seems to be helping folk, (particularly those coping with bereavement), at this difficult time. The song is called "Looking For The Rainbow" and was in response to the challenge to write a song in the context of the Coronavirus.
Walton Methodist Church have embedded the video of it in the, "A Place Of Hope" page on their web site and Trinity, Woking, (where Glen is a member), have published the YouTube Link on their weekly newsletter.
Glen's aim was to try to encourage and give hope during these dark times. He wanted to say that we often see God's glory at the darkest times just like a rainbow that is really striking when it forms in front of a very dark cloud with the sun in front of it. He uses the idea of God's promise in Genesis 9 v13 and allude to Ezeziel 1 v28 and Revelation 4 v3 where the rainbow is used to show the glory of God.
