Tips for Compering 7 Great Songs of Christmas

Christmas is celebrated with singing of carols. At this time, a compere finds it a joyful experience to inspire audiences with the various tones, colours, and emotions of Christmas.

Presented here is the script for compering 7 great songs of Christmas. Take note that in the examples, the background of the song’s message is presented quickly and then what it means to us today is refreshingly explained.

As is characteristic of all good communication each compere segment has an Intro (the introduction which captures attention), an Inspire (the body which illuminates the inspiration that the song brings to us), and The Invite (the conclusion which persuades people to listen to the song with their hearts and minds as well)!
Jesus Christ of Nazareth!

Song #1
Silent Night, Holy Night
[Intro:] Good Evening one and all. We are gathered here to remember the birth of Jesus Christ who left the glory of heaven to become fully human like one of us.

[Inspire:] No other birth had ever brought heaven so close to the earth; with music divine and light so glorious and bright parting the darkness. The glory shone and the message “Do not be afraid” rang out loud and clear. With angels singing and shepherds watching, the peaceful Christmas tidings of joy for all people at the birth of the Son of God was proclaimed.

[The Invite:] Here, the choir presents to you the all time greatest, the favourite song of Christmas across cultures and boundaries; “Silent Night, Holy Night.”

Song #2
Hark the Herald Angels Sing
[Intro:] Angel voices are rarely heard. Yet one night long time ago in Bethlehem a great company of angels proclaimed glory to the new-born King.

[Inspire:] Its resonance is heard in countless hearts and homes even today. The wonder of the virgin birth of Jesus, the marvel of Immanuel–God with us, the amazing story of God and sinners being reconciled are all brought to us through this song. In its final sweep it raises our thoughts to the Sun of Righteous who has risen for us with healing in his wings; to bring hope to us that those who trust in Jesus need not find death the end but a beginning; for they’ll live with God for ever.

[The Invite:] Enjoy the popular song, “Hark the Herald Angels Sing,” which captures the reality of Christmas in one brilliant snapshot.

Song #3
O Come, All Ye Faithful
[Intro:] So many people miss the joy of Christmas because they can’t think anything spectacular about a child lying in a manger.

[Inspire:] Yet hear the prophetic voice of Isaiah, who had a quick glimpse into the greatness of this child 7 centuries before the birth of Christ. He penned these immortal and majestic words: “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” The song, “O Come, all ye faithful,” is a call to come and adore the King of angels; it is a call to come and bless the Lord who came to save us; it is a call to worship God with songs of triumph.

[The Invite:] Therefore come, let us with one glad accord adore this child, none other than Christ the Lord.

Song #4
Joy to the World; the Lord Is Come!
[Intro:] When God pours forth his joy; he does so like a dam bursting. No one can contain the flooding and swelling of joy in one’s heart.

[Inspire:]
Such joy is experienced by all those who find their sins forgiven; and hearts washed clean by the blood of the Lamb of God shed on the cross. They can then sing along with angels joyous notes and experience what the song says: “fields and floods, rocks, hills and plains, Repeat the sounding joy.” Yes, dear friends, it is when our hearts are filled with the joy of God that we find nature too exploding with joy. This lovely song compels us to prepare our hearts and make room to receive the King at Christmas.

[The Invite:]
So let us with heaven and nature sing, “Joy to the world, the Lord is come!”

Song #5
While Shepherds Watched Their Flocks by Night
[Intro:] The first announcement of Christmas came to the shepherds watching over their flocks by night. They were not told this good news because they were poor or marginalized in society. There was a greater reason.

[Inspire:] It was that they were taking care of the flock meant for sacrifice. To them the good news came that no more animal sacrifices are needed; for the Lamb of God has come to take away the sins of the world by his once for all sacrifice. This first announcement of the Christmas message reminds us that God stepped into human history just like any one of us; as a child. But it was no ordinary child who lay in a manager; but the Saviour of the world; Christ the Lord. Let us therefore with the heavenly choir of angels relive that first Christmas night when the glory of the Lord shone around the shepherds.

[The Invite:] Listen now to “While Shepherds Watched their Flocks by Night.”

Song #6
It Came Upon the Midnight Clear
[Intro:] Some moments are etched in gold in our minds. More so when it is accompanied by music that no mortals can sing.

[Inspire:] This song is set against the backdrop of the sad and lowly plains of this earth and its confusion of sounds. Above this noise, through parted skies comes to us the heavenly music floating over this weary world. Let us stop the empty noises that we make; let us stop our quarrelling and listen to the love song the angels bring even as they sing at the midnight clear. Yes, this song tells us about the sadness of man at war with each other and having no time to listen to the glorious song of angels.

[The Invite:]
Yet the song, “It Came Upon the Midnight Clear” ends with the great hope that someday a golden age would dawn when the whole world would give back the song which now the angels sing.

Song #7
The First Noel the Angel Did Say
[Intro:] This melodious song talks of the first Christmas (Noel) on a cold winter’s night.

[Inspire:] Though the birth of Christ was first announced to shepherds, slowly the song narrates how wise men from the east saw the shining star and followed it to find the King–the King of Israel. They followed the star and found where Jesus was and worshipped him with gifts. These men were forerunners of all who would come to worship him from the ends of the earth. The song ends with a forward look to the time when all with one voice will sing praises to God because Jesus redeemed man from his sins by shedding his blood on the cross.

[The Invite:] Come on, let us celebrate the movement of God’s salvation from its first angelic announcement to the day all shall praise him from the ends of the earth. Tune your hearts to “The First Noel the Angel Did Say.”

The Crescendo
Compere’s Concluding Remarks
Ladies and Gentlemen, the world has had only one true Lover. He so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son to save man from all his sins. Yes, the deep longing for forgiveness and peace with God is the need of the hour. When that happens, the joy of Christmas will ring out loud and clear as songs of joy and triumph, and as melodies of love and peace. And one day with angels numbering countless ten thousands upon ten thousands, our tongues too shall proclaim aloud the praises of God our Saviour, Redeemer and Friend. The songs we heard tonight are just a curtain-raiser to that great day and event.

Hope you enjoyed the songs presented here tonight. May the peace of God guard your hearts as you leave this auditorium and let angels accompany your going out. Wish you a blessed Christmas and a prosperous New Year! Thank you, one and all.

7 Mistakes to Avoid While Compering

Words serve as signposts while compering. They are to be used sparingly. As King Solomon wrote: “The more the words, the less the meaning, and how does that profit anyone?” Therefore, a simple, direct, dignified style with words that come from the heart yet stimulating thought would set the tone for the day.

Tips for Compering and You Too Can Compere! will get you started with compering, Tips for Compering 7 Great Songs of Christmas will give you real script and examples of compering, while this blog post will help you avoid some common as well as serious mistakes.

#1. Once at college, a friend of mine at the end of a debate competition announced that our Professor would share his valuable ideas on the topic. It was a tense moment. For my friend had not informed our Professor that he would be asked to speak. And the auditorium was packed to full capacity. Anyway, our Professor spoke well as he is a great speaker. But later he called my friend and advised him quite strongly never to do this to another person.

Insight: Never surprise eminent people with off hand announcements that they’ll speak on the topic, that too in front of a packed audience.

#2. At an Inter-University Debate competition a young college student was made the compere of the programme. She might not have had much previous experience. For when it was time for the Chief Guest, who was the Vice Chancellor of a University, to be invited to speak, she did so while she sat down at the rear of the stage. It was shocking to say the least.

Insight: Common sense and basic courtesy should not be forgotten while compering.

#3. I once learned a valuable lesson unexpectedly. I met a person known to me. So we talked for some time. Then he asked who the other person with me was. I introduced him saying he is a painter because that is what I thought he did. At that time he said nothing. But later he told me that he is not a painter but an artist who also paints for a living. I then understood that his esteem had suffered a blow when I said he is a painter. Therefore we should seek to understand how people like to be introduced. Here many who compere fail.

For example, “He is a Scientist working with xyz Organization” is poor compering compared to “He is a Senior Scientist, and Head of the Department of Research and Development in xyz Organization for the past 15 years,” which is excellent.

Insight: When introducing people, always ask how they want to be represented before the crowd.

#4. “Our Chief Guest of the day is so and so. He’ll be speaking on the topic xyz. We can expect some great insights from him today. But before I invite him to speak let me share some of my ideas about this topic.” This kind of compere is an insult to the Chief Guest. If this person could do the job, why call a Chief Guest and then destroy anticipation and also the interest of the audience in the topic he has prepared by giving a mediocre presentation just before the keynote address?

Insight: Do not overstep your functional role. You are asked to invite the speaker to share his thoughts; and not to speak on his/her topic.

#5. Much damage is done when those who compere misuse their freedom with the person being introduced. The compere might crack jokes from their shared past by saying that while studying together at college the Chief Guest was called, “Crazy Monkey.” That might be true, but a public function is not the occasion to share it. Such remarks definitely destroys the serious mood of the audience and will make them view the speaker in a light-hearted manner. That is disastrous as far as the speaker is concerned.

Insight: A compere should be able to understand what is the apt remark for the occasion. Generally, frivolous statements should be avoided. Remember what King Solomon said: “A word aptly spoken is like apples of gold in settings of silver.”

#6. It is not good to indulge in what many have termed “verbal gymnastics” while compering. Recently I heard a compere, who, instead of simply inviting the choir for the welcome song, went on to present a thesis on the importance of music. What he said was mostly irrelevant even as many bombastic words were stringed together without ryhme or reason in his short speech. It was totally inappropriate. He should have simply said, “May I invite the choir for the welcome song.”

Insight: When a simple direct statement is apt and appropriate, do not spoil the moment by making a garland of words with all kinds of wild flowers tied together without sense or sensibility.

#7. Gestures with the hand can spell trouble if not used with caution. Many who compere spread out their hands in wild sweeping motions to their sides and towards the person who is being introduced or invited. Except perhaps in informal settings, this has to be avoided as it destroys the ceremonial propriety that has to be observed. Casual, lazy gestures that spell over-familiarity with the speaker has to be avoided at all costs.

Insight: Always strive to make the audience respect the speaker and hold him/her in high regard even with the way you gesture especially with your hands.

To conclude, let me do so in true compere style (examples of signing off):

“Ladies and gentlemen, the celebrations have begun and will continue long into the night. This World Cup just concluded has left behind some great memories like the brilliance of the fireworks now lighting up the night sky. New stars have risen, others have bid adieu. But for the moment, let us celebrate with the winners. Good night!”

“We have come to the end of a musical evening whose memories will linger long in our mind. It brought near to us the hope of Christmas as well as made us realize how precious to us the Gift of Christmas really is. It is now time to thank all the participating choirs once again for their enthusiastic rendering of traditional carols and other popular songs filling our hearts with joy. Wish you all a Jesus-centred Christmas and may all your dreams, desires and wishes come true at this blessed time of the year.”

“But When You Pray”

Prayer is the highest form of communication possible to man!

A better understanding of prayer can help us be great communicators; for prayer is conversation with God. When Jesus taught about prayer (recorded in his famous Sermon on the Mount), he said:

“But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”

Praying Hands

Several key thoughts emerge from this single statement on prayer. The most revolutionary thought is that prayer is a relationship. It is talking to your Father in heaven. It is not that God does not know what you need. That is not the reason why Jesus encouraged those who heard him to pray. It is because God delights to hear his children speak to him because that is the most natural way of expressing a relationship. The Father in heaven is near and approachable when his children come to him in prayer.

The second thought is that prayer is spending time alone with God. This happens only when there is love between man and God. For those in a love relationship do not mind spending time with each other, however long hours it takes. Unfortunately the common thought is that prayer is some kind of burden when you put on a long face. But God promises joy to his children in his presence when they spend time with him in prayer.

Another thought is that Jesus encouraged people to talk directly to their Father in heaven. He said to “go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen.” The focus is on you and God; all alone:

What a picture this is! Can you imagine the privilege to have God as your audience? What will you speak? Yes, in the secret place of your talking with God, you can be honest with him. It is here that you open your heart and let God know of all your fears, doubts, anxieties, worries, temptations and expectations.

And imagine again the truth that you need no one else’s help to pray. Jesus said that you can approach God directly in prayer. What a privilege this is! Nothing is said about perfect grammar, right pronunciation or a particular language to pray. Even a broken heart too burdened to say words is accepted by God as genuine prayer. What a comfort this is!

Then there is the promise of reward. One way of seeing reward is how God teaches us humility and dependence on him in prayer. He refines our character and makes us better by helping us wait for the answers he has kept for us. This is the toughest part for it goes directly against the tech savvy “I want it and I want it now” generation. But in the waiting process, the praying man or woman is changed to be a better person; and that is definitely one reward of prayer.

Let me conclude with one final thought. There is a great promise on prayer in the Bible which says: “Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.” The invitation to pray is God’s. His promise that he’ll answer your prayers is true. And there are things unknown to us that God will show us when we pray. What more do you want to ask for?

Have You Hid Your Talent?

Heard this morning a sermon at church on the man who hid the one talent he got by digging a hole in the ground (the talent was a huge sum of money). It reminded me of the lines in Thomas Gray’s famous work, “Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard”

“Full many a gem of purest ray serene,
The dark unfathomed caves of ocean bear:
Full many a flower is born to blush unseen,
And waste its sweetness on the desert air.”

Sadly, those who could become great with their talents often hide it. The reasons could be many. It can be shyness, or a sense of inferiority. More than that what I have seen in many is the “My gifts and talents are just for me to enjoy” attitude. It is important in this context to remember that our talents or gifts are not just for our own enjoyment. If we think many talents and gifts have been given to us for just expressing ourselves and then hiding it, we are missing the point entirely.

Life is not an island where you live all on your own. Instead it is the marketplace that best describes life where many come and meet and take of each other’s gifts and abilities. So display your talents not to show-off but to benefit those who are the spectators. Who knows the world of good you can inspire in another with that gift which is uniquely yours?

In conclusion, there is a warning note in The Parable of the Talents that Jesus Christ taught. Two servants who had used their talents and increased it by work were commended by their Master with these words, “Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!” Though there was promotion, honour and rewards for those who used their talents, punishment was given to the man who hid his talent in the ground and gave some lazy excuses for not using the money given to him.

So, it is good to take a close look today at the excuses you give for not using your talent for the good of others. What are the real reasons behind them? Is it not the fear of being rejected? If so, it is high time that you step out of that fear and let your light shine brightly for others to see. Yes, “A city on a hill cannot be hidden!”

7 Steps to Get Out of Inferiority Complex

The Rain!

No one conveys emotions better than the rain.

Nothing else is so universal; yet so personal like the rain. There is a grandeur about the rain that has made it a compelling subject of great literature, art, movies, and music. Yet there is something that is so common about it that children love to play in the rain.

Nostalgia
Our hearts swell with joy when we think of childhood experiences of the rain. Nostalgic memories like a heavy downpour flood our emotions at that very thought. For no one misses the first wonder of the rain he felt as a child. Rain is so close to our hearts that “Mazha” (meaning rain in Malayalam) is one of the first words that we learn in childhood.

A child, as he watches the rain, soon learns that the cheeks of the clouded skies are but collected teardrops which pour down when too much to hold. So much like a child’s eyes that floods at a moment’s notice and rolls down. And clears when given a toy or a chocolate or a balloon!

Romance
Ah, then who has not felt the romance of the rain? The chilly winds, the slanting rain, the the murmur, the dark and gathering clouds, the lightning that strikes and the thunder-rolls; all have created magic like nothing else. In that respect rain has been a broad canvas on which rainbow colours of love have often been painted.

Though there are scenes in movies that show fights and also the sadness of partings while it is raining; its numbers pale in comparison with the theme of love and romance explored. For some reason that defies logic, the rain is a matter of the heart; like love is.

Therefore the absence of rain in nature as well as in human relationships creates anguish. For rain in spite of its occasional fury is a symbol of affection, care and compassion. It nourishes, refreshes, and leaves behind a sense of cleansing as it washes all the dust and debris away. No one can survive long without being an object of such tenderness in human life. Rain is therefore a symbol of hope and new beginnings in life.

Variety
Moreover, rain so perfectly mirrors our moods: the playful hide and seek of rain and sunshine (“kurukkende kalayanam” as we call it in Malayalam; meaning Fox’s Wedding), the thunderstorms and fiery lightning exposing our frightened thoughts and hiding places, the gentle rain that caresses the cheeks with its lovely dewdrops, the chillness that make us long for companionship; all are intertwined with our lives as well.

Or think of the variety of experiences rain gifts us with: a child rushes in to his home to make paper boats to float in the rushing water, another splashes into puddles of water that collects, still others make merry under the comfort of spread umbrellas or by wearing fancy raincoats, some others watch the rain from within a car with all windows up, while some find joy in walking alone in the rain and getting drenched to the skin! These are all experiences that are so much part of our life; aren’t they? It is also difficult to erase the memory of togetherness when someone had walked with a loved one in the rain!

What the Rain Said
Ah, it’s raining once again. And I think it is time to ask the Rain what message it has for us. As I ask I see its cheeks blush; but then with an openness rarely seen in today’s jealous world, the Rain spoke; hesitantly at first; but then in torrents:

“My love is like a pent-up flood that comes down to all in season. I do not ask whether you appreciate my coming or not. Yet I give of myself sacrificially and fully. I hold nothing back. It’s my hope and prayer that my arrivals bring you refreshing and my departures leave behind everything fresher and greener. And like blades of grass lift up their heads with dewdrops on them sparkling like diamonds to greet the sun emerging from behind the clouds, I am persuaded that you too will rise up from all defeats with renewed courage and resolve. I’ll be there to see you succeed, dear friend.”

The RainbowIMG_3316
So spoke the Rain. And thus spoke a prophet of long ago as words failed him when he saw the glory of God in a vision:

“Like the appearance of a rainbow in the clouds on a rainy day, so was the radiance around him. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD.”

These are words of comfort; for God had promised that whenever he sees the rainbow appear in the clouds, he’ll remember us and show us mercy. Therefore let rain clouds gather; and let the rainbow appear!

What Was More Valuable: Life or a Sandal?

Train“For the attention of passengers, Train No. 12696, from Thiruvananthapuram to Chennai Central will leave shortly from platform No. 3 at 17 hours 25 minutes.” As this was ringing in my ears, little did I know that I was about to witness a memorable incident right there on the platform.

This incident occurred a few years ago at the platform of Thiruvananthapuram railway station (in Kerala, India). I had gone to see my parents off. After they had been seated inside the compartment, I waited outside on the platform by the window of the train. It was almost time for the train to move.

Then I saw a man rush out of the door nearby. He stooped down on his knees on the platform and was frantically trying to get something from underneath the train. Since it was time for the train to move I became curious and went near him to see what it was. He was trying to get one sandal that his little daughter had thrown out through the window. Unable to get it, he ran to a small shop on the platform, borrowed a stick from them and tried hard to lift the sandal.

By that time the signal had turned from red to orange and the blast of the horn was heard. I went near that man who was down on his knees and bending way down towards the railway track in that narrow space between the train and the platform. I tapped him on the shoulder and said, “The train is about to move. The signal is going to turn green. Be careful. Leave the sandal!” But he was in no mood to listen (whether the sandal cost a fortune or whether it had some nostalgic value; I don’t know). Yet just in the nick of time, before the train started moving he lifted the sandal, and with a proud smile on his face boarded the moving train.

For a moment, caught up by the drama of the man in action, I had forgotten that I did not say goodbye to my parents. As I realized it with a jolt, I saw my parents come to near the door to look out to see what had happened to me. I waved to them to say everything was O.K.

It was then that I saw that wonderful sight. As the man was moving towards his seat with the reclaimed sandal proudly lifted up in his hand, and as soon as he reached his family; the little girl threw out the other sandal she had with her from the moving train!

I wondered how silly people act at times. The man, in the first place, should have responsibly valued his life (especially in relation to his wife and kids) and refrained from trying to lift the sandal as the train was about to move. Secondly, he could have listened when I told him to leave the sandal alone. Finally, he could have stepped into the shoes of the little girl who might have thought, “If one sandal is gone, let the other also be left behind!”

Then I thought again. How many times we too like that man have acted foolishly in life even after seeing warning signals? Often it’s by God’s grace alone we live to get a second chance.

7 Steps to Get Out of Inferiority Complex

“I’ve severe inferiority complex. I would like to talk about it sometime”; so said an IT professional to me over phone a few weeks ago. I suddenly felt the pain with which he spoke.

It also reminded me of many other students I had met in my training sessions; who though putting on a brave and confident face on the outside hid a nagging problem of inferiority on the inside. At some point they too had revealed that their struggle was with inferiority complex more than anything else. Many did confess this with tears in their eyes.

Why is inferiority complex so widespread? Why does it affect people who sport a very confident face otherwise? Is there any solution to this? If so, how can one get out of this as a better person?

Honestly, no easy solutions come to mind. Each individual may have had struggles early in life which are unique to that person. A sympathetic understanding of underlying causes might help to kick-start the journey on the road to recovery and wholeness.

Yet whatever be the cause, the root of inferiority complex is lies and deception. It happens when we believe wrong and unjust estimates about ourselves. Others might pressurize us to believe these lies or we might just be deceived to believe them on our own. If you can learn to unmask these lies and deception; then you stand a greater chance to get out of inferiority complex. Indeed, it is the truth that will set you free.

#1. Know that you as a person has value in God’s eyes.
No matter how unjust the comparisons that are made about you; and how unfair that criticism that is made against you, God loves you and values you as a unique individual. You are not someone lost in the crowd; but you’re someone with great worth in God’s eyes. The Lord says: “I have loved you with an everlasting love.” Do you believe this? It is the first step on the road to recovery.

#2. Know that the glamorous and the glossy that is presented as good and perfect in the media and advertisements are mostly grossly inflated presentations.
The real world is more about failures, disappointments and despair along with occasional triumphs in the daily grind of life and dull routine. So do not measure your worth against unreal values the marketing world attractively and temptingly presents.

#3. Know that in spite of everything you can think of negatively about yourselves, there is one thing that is good about you.
Your challenge is to find that one thing and be very good at it. Make it a great strength of yours. Let it become your passport to greatness. Though weakness is common to all; it is your duty to work hard and excel in one thing you are good at. When you excel in that one thing the root of inferiority complex can be cut down.

#4. Know that the past with all its pains, hurts, failures and heartbreaks have to be forgotten.
So many people find themselves struggling with guilt and fear because they had been victimized in the past. Such experiences do take time to heal. But your cooperation is a must. You need to decide to get up from where you’re lying down. Do not be comfortable with your pain. Shut the door behind to such memories and get on with life.

#5. Know that you can learn to see the negative circumstances in your life differently.
See bad circumstances in life as the training ground where your character is made strong through the fires of difficulty. Also be thankful for the difficulties in life. The thankful attitude, if practiced constantly will give you joy and enable you to defy the downward pull of inferiority complex and rise above negative circumstances.

#6. Know that labels need not be allowed to stick permanently on you.
Once a doctor told me “My two children are introverts.” I was shocked. Because her children who had attended my training sessions had done so well in class; especially team events. So I asked her why she held the belief that her children are introverts? She told me that their school teacher had told her so. How sad that this mother so thoughtlessly parroted this in front of others in the hearing of her children. I was compelled to tell her that the teacher’s role and duty was not to label her children negatively but to help them come out of their shells. However, I told her, I was happy that her children did not believe what she or their teacher had told. So you need to recognize that negative labels don’t define you. Instead you have the power and the ability to tear off these negative labels. Why not do it now?

#7. Know that you can make a difference.
There are many people who need you. Often it is the sense of uselessness that creates inferiority complex. Get involved in building up the lives of others; especially those who have not many to encourage them to succeed. The knowledge that you put a smile on someone’s face by a kind word, gesture or deed; the realization that your help gave someone the courage to live another day; is a great healer.

In conclusion, let me tell you that inferiority complex is not a problem that is solved in a moment’s time. Sometimes it can be a lifelong battle. Those who are suffering from inferiority complex need not lose heart if the struggle seems too long drawn out. There is yet hope. Do not despise yourself. But be thankful that you can still make a positive and creative difference in the lives of others in spite of struggling with feelings of inferiority!
