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.
