I’ve just gotten home from a great time at the National Worship Leader Conference in Kansas City. I’m having that “good kind” of exhausted today.
We saw 300 (more like 350) attend a special presentation of LOVE DIVINE: The Songs of Charles Wesley for Today on Tuesday with Tim Hughes, Brenton Brown, Chris McClarney, Katie Gustafson and John Hartley that I emcee’d, with great response for these new settings of powerful lyrics. Marvelous to see folks worshipping from the heart with lyrics from the 18th Century and music from the 21st! You can get a feel for the project with a free song and chart download that also has more information.
A special welcome and thanks to those who have purchased my new resource book, “magnify!–105 modern worship devotionals for lead worshippers and their teams”! I’m glad to be able to partner with and be a resource to you. [More on “magnify!” later…]
And, thanks to others who attended my seminar: “Planning to worship? Help people engage by asking the right questions!” I was blessed by your attendance and interaction, and hope that the insights will be a help–even though I know most of you came here for the worship music complaint letters. (Those are in Worship fan mail!) Full notes for my seminar are downloadable here, or you can revisit or share that material with the two-part webinar that I’ve done for Worship Leader Magazine.
In the next several days, I plan on making this more active, so as you have questions and comments, please post them. With your involvement this will be a much more active community as we look at worship, music, missions, technology and more.
