United in celebrating the Church’s 106th anniversary, 10 ecclesiastical districts in Asia collaborated to showcase an online musical presentation dubbed as “Songs of Salvation.” It was telecast via INCTV and INC Production Company Social Media Channel.
Spearheaded by the Christian Family Organizations (CFO) Office, the musical, wherein the performers sang original Iglesia Ni Cristo songs, consisted of three parts. The first part showed the musical performances by brethren from the Ecclesiastical Districts of Sabah, Hong Kong, Macau, and Nagoya.
In their rendition of “Angel from the East,” the performers from Sabah highlighted the fulfillment of God’s promise of sending a messenger to preach the truth.
The Hong Kong’s District’s rendition of “Ako’y maghihintay sa Iyong pagliligtas” then followed. It depicted a true servant’s conviction that God will uphold him with His promised salvation in the face of uncertainties and difficulties.
The brethren from Macau performed the song “Through the commissioning of Christ” which narrates how the Church Of Christ in these last days came to being with the instrumentality of God’s Messenger. The Nagoya District commemorated Brother Felix Y. Manalo through the song “The True Messenger of God in these Last Days.”
The second set, performed by Church members from the Ecclesiastical Districts of Tokyo, Thailand, and South Korea, rendered “Ikaw na Aking Hinawakan sa mga Wakas ng Lupa,” “You Made Your Messenger Victorious” and “Tangi naming kaaliwan,” respectively. Meanwhile, the third set consisted of the Ecclesiastical Districts of Taiwan South, Malaysia, and Taiwan performed “Ang Tungkuling Itiniwala, Puspusan Naming Magawa,” “Magpapasakop sa Pamamahala ng Iglesia” and “Ang Alipin sa Malayong Silangan,” respectively.
Church members throughout the 10 ecclesiastical districts zealously watched within the confines of their respective homes. They said that such a lively performance motivated them to all the more be active in their worship of God and the Church activities despite the current pandemic crisis. ― With reports from INC News Section
