FRIDAY INSTIGATION

Back with another batch of things that drive me crazy. I’m a little less grumpy this week since the new record was released, but it turns out that church world is still just as baffling and weird.

Debate is a good thing. Somewhere in the worship culture we’ve decided that every new album is good, all sermons are theologically sound and there are no bad worship songs.

I don’t submit these little rants for the sake of venting (although it helps.) I do it because some stuff is great and some stuff isn’t. And it should be talked about.

-Got a nice, strong dose of conviction last week about music and ministry. God regularly has to knock me around a bit to remind me of what it means to be a worship leader. I’m grateful for those hard, convicting moments. I need ’em.

-Either I’m getting old or CCM is reaching higher levels of ineptitude.

-Decided this week to commit to reaching out to worship leaders at small/mid-size churches for coaching, consultation and encouragement. Praying that God would build some strong worship leader relationships.

-Worship leaders are really bad at having friendships with other worship leaders. FACT.

-Feeling overwhelmed by the volume of musicians available to serve in worship at the church. It’s a good problem to have, but I’m having trouble making logistics work.

    No, you are not getting old…CCM is full of ineptitude and insipidness. It is being cranked out like products on the assembly line, much like the Nashville Country music scene, which, incidentally, is the same hub as most of CCMdom. Also, about the over abundance of musicians. I like what Paul Baloche said and a workshop; the congregation deserves the best and most excellent musicians that genuinely have a heart for God and Worship.
