Theology of Technology: A Faceless World

  The Eastern Church Fathers specifically painted the Triune God as being in a relationship within Himself in a kind of “face-to-face dance.”  The word used for such a reality was perichoresis.  John’s use of the Word being with God in John 1 also testifies to this.  It means that, in the beginning, the Word (Jesus) was toward the Father—conjuring up a beautiful picture of a face-to-face God. However, the kingdom of the world is...

WMC Network/Directory Submissions.

For me, this could be a huge way to do some networking with other worship leaders in the area and when traveling.

The Leadership Challenge

I came across this quote in a book I’m reading, The Leadership Challenge by Kouzes, Posner. In some ways, leaders live their lives backward. They see pictures in their minds eye of what the results will look like even before they’ve started their project, much as an architect draws a blueprint or an engineer builds a model. Their clear image of the future pulls them forward. Yet visions seen only by leaders are...

Christmas is coming the goose is getting…

I don’t know if you’ve been having the same problem I’ve been having, but when it’s 92 degrees outside, it doesn’t matter how loud you crank up the Christmas Music, it’s extremely hard to get into the Christmas mood. And when it’s hard to get in the Christmas mood, it’s hard to plan for Christmas. This year at our church, we really trying to come up with something very different...

Weekend Review 08-1617-08

This week was great, we had a great worship time with a trio of musicians up there for the weekend. Keys, Bass & Drums. No vocalists except for me. And it turned out pretty good. The upside – I got to experiment with my coldplay keys technique and try to come up with some catchy hooks for some of the songs that are normally acoustic or electric driven, so that was kind of fun. At the same time, doing that takes away from my...
