Just Worship, Stupid!

I haven’t totally thrown myself into this blogging thing. I think I really want to, which means I need to do it everyday….or at least every other week. Which would be better than the current.

Moving on…

Why are worship styles so volitile? As a worship leader in a church with both ‘traditional’ and ‘contemporary’ worship…it is frustrating to see people mad/angry/scared/intimidated/ignorant of another ‘form’ of worship. I grew up in a traditional church, but my preference is a more ‘contemporary’ (i hate that term)…ok, how about modern form of worship. But here is the deal, I love hymns. Not all of them, but most of the classics. Yet at our ‘traditional’ services, we sing these hymns of faith/songs of praise like we are half dead. That is where traditional worship wears me out. On the flip side, the same thing can happen to ‘modern’ worship if we don’t keep our hearts focused on the Father.

I think God gets angry when we squabble over forms of worship. Our function is to worship, honor, adore, cherish our Creator. Shame on us in the church who put the form of worship over the function.

The Pittsburgh Pirates suck. Sure they have won like 6 of their last 9, but as a lifelong fan, it really challenges my faith to see them consistently terrible. When will they have a good season? At least they are not the Cubs!

Peace, Love, Joy
