“Your role in that moment, for that hour-and-a-half, is to be a shepherd of people, that leads them on stage and off stage, towards Jesus.”
A Professional Chef knows what excellence is. Here are 5 things I learned about worship from the best chef in Austin.
Our relationship to God is unique because we share all three ways of being kindred; family by blood, family by marriage and family by adoption.
Just like a lawyer doesn’t just go to the office once a week when he’s feeling particularly argumentative, a songwriter can’t wait for the perfect moment of inspiration to write a song. They MUST write something every day.
Real songs come from real experience. We can all sniff out songs that are written from a place of “catchiness or pop hook” and not something that comes from someone’s actual life. It’s that obvious. Honesty is essential.
I believe it is a crucial part of our role as worship leaders, by following the Spirit’s leading, to place words on the lips of worshipers that they may use to ascribe worth and value to the King, Jesus.
