This is Like Heaven

by Charles deBueger

 Although there were a lot of those “Blessing” videos going around over lockdown, the WEC Arts Release Arts Release team wanted to do something a bit more multi-lingual, multi-cultural and multi-style to celebrate the diversity of the worldwide church. But if I’d known quite how much work it was going to be, I might not have put my hand up to do the editing. Taming the footage that 37 singers and musicians from all around the world took on their cell phones was not a job for the faint of heart. We chose a song called “Nara Ekele Mo” (Receive My Thanks). It received about 40k YouTube views worldwide in the first week. Being of Nigerian origins, the recording has proved very popular there, and Nigerian believers are sharing it with their non-Christian friends which is very encouraging. So many commented “this is like heaven” – which is part of what we mean when we pray, “let your kingdom come on earth as in heaven.”
