He did not just change Pop music - he changed the world of music. There are only a select few that have altered the music time line of history: Billy Holiday, Buddy Holly, the Beatles, Elvis, Frank Sinatra - it can be argued that they each changed the face of the music industry. Michael Jackson changed several industries - Music, video, dance and choreography.

I can't tell you how many times I have heard those involved in worship in previous church's use terms like production or performance when speaking of worship services. I would agree with them that what was being done was indeed a production or performance based on where the focus was (lighting, graphics, mood, ambience). These things in and of themselves aren't bad but I am growing more concerned that the Hollywood production values are becoming so woven into the fabric of worship that it is… Continue

This is long, but interesting. I think the last paragraph sums up what we a worship leaders need to be modelling for the people in our churches to show them what living a life of worship is about. Blessings, David

Kingdom of Priests- Priesthood of Kings!
June 26th, 2009
These are two powerful principles taught to us by the Holy Spirit and the Word of God.
First, we are a kingdom of priests:
Rev. 5:9,10 (my paraphrase) You have redeemed them from every tribe and tongue by Your Blood and have made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God and they shall reign on the earth! (emphasis mine).
The role of the priest in the Old Testament was to minister to… Continue

I urge all worship leaders, musicians, singers, and congregants to read this article. It is a wonderful complement to the backstory of Matt Redman's THE HEART OF WORSHIP (http://www.crosswalk.com/1253122/). These two sources are key to deeping your church's worship.

I'd like to thank all of you who've been praying for Mark, our guitarist. He was able to join us this morning for worship, albeit wheeling an Oxygen tank along. It was an interesting morning...Mark on O2 part of the time, myself on Ricola (I wonder if they'd do a sponsorship? We go through enough of the stuff on our team...) and the Pastor in a bit of a blue funk because their beloved family dog had to be put down yesterday.
In spite of all the weirdness, God's love was… Continue

Where Worship Begins
by Scott Wesley Brown
I really didn’t want to be there at the door. There were so many things I had to do to get ready for worship that Sunday morning. Greeting people at the front entrance was not my idea of getting prepared for the opening set of worship songs. All I could think of was, did everyone have the song sheets in the right order? Did the singers have enough rehearsal time to get those harmonies down tight? Was that monitor going to keep buzzing… Continue

Hello everybody! I just signed into WTR after a few months of not being logged on. I've been doing several projects lately. One of them was switching bedrooms with Mother. (I gave her the larger room). I moved all the furniture. Now I'm in the process of wondering how I'm going to rearrange all my stuff. I had it arranged just the way I wanted, until Mom advised me of a better way. I just got to find the right time to do it. In the meanwhile, I will be trying to write creatively and read some… Continue

I wonder when Jesus will return, I hear of a Rapture, I hear about the Last Days, I hear about wars and the threat of Nuclear War, I hear about an Antichrist that will come pretending to be God in flesh.
I am awaiting the hour My Redeemer calls my name, when I look up to see the glory of God and Jesus looking down at me, I will know that He is here at last, that my earthly life is finished and my eternal life will be His reward for my coming to Him when He called.
I was born a… Continue

As the young man went to bed that evening, little did he know that it would be his last day here on earth, the last time he would remove his artificial leg and lay it nearby as he laid his body down to rest. On his desk was an old typewriter containing a special letter he had written to his older brother who had helped lead him to Jesus a few weeks earlier, in a room just below, a spark from the chimney would fall into an abandoned fireplace and ignite the fire which would take his life as he… Continue

I thought it might be fun to blog about the devotions I was having through the week on my website:
I also am adding video logs where I talk about the stories behind each song I have written. I also want to show videos of my town, church, and other fun stuff. So if you are interested in those kinds of things, stop by.

Worship is a Lifestyle
Worship is far more than music.
For many people,worship is just a synonym for music.They say "at our church we have the worship first,and then the teaching".This is a big misunderstanding.Every part of a church service is an act of worship:praying,Scripture reading,singing,confession,silence,being… Continue
