Ricky Anthony replied to Phil Williams's discussion 'Do you still play bass notes if a bass player is present?'
"Diana is right, it's very tempting to thump away on those growly low piano notes, especially as dynamics pick up, thereby drowning the bass. Takes some self control sometimes, but it is important to give the bass player their space. I…"

"Great conversation and comments.  Thank you all for being considerate and mindful of your bass players! We often feel like the forgotten members of the band. All we really do is try to make what everybody else is playing sound as good as…"

"A few Sundays ago we did "Build Your Kingdom Here" at tempo, flailing away with a couple acoustics, keyboard, bass, me on strat. Flailing is about right. I was sweaty afterwards. A "Jingling Johnny" is entirely appropriate on…"

Lorraine Doswell replied to Phil Williams's discussion 'Who are your worship music influences or heroes?'
"Hi Toni, Thanks for replying.  It now makes sense why the songs wouldn't be ideal for a congregation to sing.  It's good though that they have adapted their style to make it more acceptable for worship.  Nothing wrong with…"

Robert Andrew Crane replied to Phil Williams's discussion 'Praise Songs vs Worship Songs'
"This is an interesting question, and got me interested in joining the conversation. Here's my take on praise vs. worship. I think of praise to God as being much the same as when we praise each other. We mostly talk about accomplishments,…"

Toni replied to Phil Williams's discussion 'Who are your worship music influences or heroes?'
"Hi Lorraine: the tunes were very 'characteristic' in a folk-ditty style, full of stop-starts and with odd phrasing that in retrospect wouldn't have sat well for a congregation. They were OK to listen to in the context of a recording…"

Thanks for the warm welcome, Phil! And thank you, too, for setting up and administering WTR. I'm so glad to have stumbled upon your site. Just reading the comments from you and some of the members have already encouraged me. Yes, I will invite our church's worship leaders to join. Stay blessed!

Hi Phil, 

Thank you for welcoming me! It will be good to "fellowship" with others who find joy in praising the only One worthy of our worship!

I lost a son to an accident. I literally would by laughing my head off on one page and crying on the next.

It gave me a new perspective on who God is to read that a woman that sounded like Aunt Jemima opened the door to the shack.

I like to thing of the mother as the Holy Spirit of the home, so Sarayu was perfect.

I found "theologians" on the web criticizing the doctrine of The Shack. A fictional story about a family... really.

I bought 9 books to give to friends and family... some I loaned out... I got one back that had been read so much it was frazzled. Even though I write in the cover of my books, "This book was stolen from George Markos. Just kidding, thanks for returning."
