Worship Words – A Review

As a worship leader and a songwriter, I knew that a book entitled Worship Words – Discipling Language for Faithful Ministry was a book that I was supposed to read, but as I saw it on the…

If anyone deserved respect, it was David: Anointed giant killer, mighty warrior, winner of the “Battle of the Bands – Harp Shred” numerous times. So why was he being chased around the desert by the king and his army? He probably felt as respected as Rodney Dangerfield (“I don't get no respect. The king told me to go outside and play 'Dodge the Chariot'”). God had anointed him king; where was the…

Great songs, Al! I am very particular about what I like and what I don't. Melody is sooooo important to me, and you've got some great ones here. A pop song writer after my own heart--lol Praise God for your gifts! keep rockin' for the Rock!

Thanks for the add- I like your stuff! I'm relatively new to worship songwriting, self-publishing and such (, so any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.

Hey Al, how's it going? I just wanted to let you know that I was on your website and listened to a couple of the songs - really enjoyed them! Love what you're doing there, so keep it up. Have a great day, brother!

Five?!? Are any of them vacationing for Memorial Day in Minnesota?
LOL!! Hehe!
Seriously, that's great encouragement, Al. Thanks for that.

Al, our feedback problem is much better! Thanks for asking!
In fact, our stage volume has been really low this month due to temporarily losing our electric guitar player (you can see my note in the prayer circle on that). Good news is that I think there has been a huge spiritual advance in his life and so we hope to have him back sometime in June.
I covet all prayers about my no-drummer situation ... Lost the main drummer this week over a miscommunication. Meanwhile (in addition to what I wrote on the prayer wall) the backup drummer is on vacation for two weeks (with wife, keyboard player) - and they are studying the book "Reimagining Church" which categorizes any church with a building and a pastor as "institutional," claiming the answer to be home churches. I think the author's points seem less grounded in scripture and more grounded in his own restlessness ... So I hope the truth will rise to the top for these two, but it is possible we could lose them soon.
Good thing is, I think God is showing me that the spiritual bar on the worship team must be raised - not every musically gifted person should be leading worship ... my new "bar" for us is that we are all spiritually solid in our faith and that we all "get" The Edge. ie, now mandatory for all members: Edge 101 membership class. Sounds a little rigid, but I'm feeling awfully burned and it's no fault but my own. Is this how Matt Redman felt when he lost the whole band and wrote "Heart of Worship"? :)
How are you doing?
(Do you know any good drummers in the Twin Cities? Lol) Sorry I went so long on this note! I know that God is still in control in this situation and probably orchestrating it all.
