Back with another batch of things that drive me crazy.
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.
– Still seeing good results on the diet. I’ve added some “green” to what I eat, which is a big deal for me.
– Speaking of dieting, I’ve come to love two words: CHEAT DAY.
– Yesterday was my 15th wedding anniversary. God has been merciful and kind. Kristen and I are thankful for the marriage and the way the Father has sustained it.
– I always forget how hard Summer is when it comes to scheduling players at church. Have to call on all my musicians to step up!
– I’ve got two songs on the new Ross King album. One of the tunes is called “Hallelujah For The Cross” and I am beyond excited for people to hear it. Ross and his team took this song to the next level.
– Still trying to carve out time each week for songwriting. Nothing major yet, but I do like the discipline of it!
– I don’t have many delusions of grandeur, but every time I see some guy wailing on an MPC, I secretly think I could do it. (I am incorrect in this assumption.)
– I think we’re all gonna’ be real surprised when we get to Heaven. I bet they don’t even sing CCLI songs up there.
– Worship leaders, we gotta’ stop picking songs just because the melody is strong. These things are supposed to make sense.
– Read an interview with the head of a major Christian publisher. One of the most interesting things was when he said something akin to “We give a ton of resources away for free through our worship site, but we’ve got to figure out how to monetize it.”
