Two Jehovah’s Witnesses dropped by yesterday. They stood on my front porch and talked about Jesus. They read several passages from the Bible.
They were very kind. They left a copy of the Watchtower. They headed on down the road.
We seem to give them back to you, O God, who gave them to us.
Yet as you did not lose them in giving, so we do not lose them by their return.
Not as the world gives do you give, O Lover of souls.
What you give you take not away, for what is yours is ours also if we are yours.
And life is eternal, and love is immortal, and death is only an horizon,
and an horizon is nothing, save the limit of our sight.
Lift us up, strong Son of God, that we may see further;
cleanse our eyes that we may see more clearly;
draw us closer to yourself that we may know ourselves to be nearer our
loved ones who are with you.
And while you do prepare a place for us, prepare us also for that happy place,
that where you are, we may be also for evermore.–Fr Bede Jarrett O.P. (order of preachers)

Pure and simple, Tabernacle of Praise is a place where our heart is set to praise God. When we do, we become word activated, love motivated, praise saturated, and a people liberated. Are you asking, “What does that mean exactly?”–Tabernacle of Praise website
