Recently saw a hashtag from worship leader Laurien Hook and had to join in. #WorshipLeaderConfessions
-We see you. From the guy glaring at us with folded arms to the woman worshipping like a crazy person to the people who try to sneak in during the prayer because they’re late…we see it all.
-We get nervous. Every single time.
-We’re up there doing our best to worship God, but we’re constantly processing what the band is doing. You know…in case it all falls apart.
-Something goes wrong in every set. It may be slight, but at least one thing goes wrong every time.
-Sometimes, we don’t feel like worshipping. But we get up and do it anyway. Obedience is the secret sauce of worship.
-We hardly get any “hate” face-to-face. Most Sundays we leave the church without hearing anything from anybody – good or bad.
-Leading worship is more physically exhausting than most people think.
-We know we can’t please everybody. And we hate that.
