Sunday Afternoon Music Video: Living Flame of Love

Blessings for Pentecost! In honor of the multilingual miracle we celebrate today I offer not one but three music videos. The first and second are settings--one in English folk style and one polyphonic, in the original Spanish--of St. John of the Cross's lovely poem "Living Flame of Love." The third is a bilingual Hebrew-English song entitled Bo Ruach Elohim, "Come Holy Spirit." Enjoy them, and let us know in the comments what you sang today in worship.


  1. Hi there! Our worship bank played this one, Carry Your Candle" for our final song. Folks stayed seated and just joined in the refrain when it repated. The ushers did a "reverse offering" to hand out individual red tealight candles to each worshiper during the song. I felt very Epiphany-y with all my light themes in today's worship (the kids sang "This Little Light of Mine" and a couple of others), but I tied it all back to flames, not just light so I think it worked. I'm not always a worship band-kind-of-music person, but I really liked this one. The sermon, finished at 8:25 a.m. for 9:30 a.m. worship, is up front here. I can't get a link directly to the sermon to work, but it's the front and center post right now.


  2. We sang Like the Murmur of a Dove's Song, At Pentecost They Gathered, and finished with a rousing Rejoice, You Pure in Heart. Small Choir (the creme de la creme) sang some Thomas Tallis and another Elizabethan age thing and then the whole choir did a great version of I'm Gonna Sing when the Spirit says Sing. Thanks for the videos!

  3. Thanks for sharing these... a breath of encouragement and peace for me today...
