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.

– Heard a song last week built on the phrase, “We wait for you / We wait for you / We wait for you to walk in the room.” This is not a good song. Already have a post written on it for next week!

– Was grateful folks liked the Dear Pastor post from earlier this week, but surprised I didn’t catch one or two stray haters off it.

– The long awaited trailer for the new Rich Mullins biopic, “Ragamuffin,” dropped this week. There’s a lot going on in this trailer. Check it here. It looks great.

– Finally got our live board mix recording feature up and running at Bethel. Band sounds pretty good. The singer…YIKES.

– Took the plunge and let my wife plan out my diet for this week. It’s been hard, but I’ve taken a few pounds off. Every little bit helps!

– Finally finished a song that had been bugging me for months! It’s very simple, but I like how it turned out. Would like to teach at Bethel very soon!

    I found the trailer for the Rich Mullins movie to be very moving. I hope they didn’t give away everything in the trailer.

    ” We wait for you.” YIKES! God initiates worship and invites us, and yet we feel compelled to invite Him as if it were our idea.

      Yeah, I’m excited about the Mullins movie. Couple of things really interest me about the trailer. Think it much more gritty and honest than folks initially thought.
