Power Filled Worship

Power Filled Worship

  An obsession with power fills our world.  Whether it’s through the dominance of a government system, the outrage of a murder in the streets, a catty fight in the school hallways, or gossiping words that malign a person behind their back, all of these pursuits tarnish people and the idea of one thing—power!   In our thirst to comfort ourselves and to make ourselves feel safe, we endlessly search for powerful masters that we...

An Interview with Charlie Hall

An Interview with Charlie Hall

When Charlie Hall began in his late teens leading music and writing songs, he realized very quickly that he knew very little about guiding God’s people as a Shepherd. He didn’t know what worship leading even meant. Today, Charlie Hall still believes God is birthing something new in him even though he’s been leading music in Baptist, charismatic and de-churched settings for 25+ years. For much of his ministry Charlie admits struggling...

A Picture Is Worth … A Lot Less than You Think

A Picture Is Worth… A Lot Less than You Think The most common question I get asked when I talk about worship curating is, “Can you show me some photos of what you do?”   Yes, I can. But the most important part of what I do can’t be photographed. A photo can show you how I answered my questions about what I wanted to achieve with a particular worship event. It can show you the space I used, what I did with the space, and how it...

Curation: The Glue That Holds Worship Together

Curation: The Glue That Holds Worship Together

Curation: The Glue That Holds Worship Together   I first coined the term “worship curator” about 20 years ago after participating in a fairly bizarre art installation that consisted of a series of large ponds filled with paint.   I had been putting together weekly community worship events and theme-specific ambient worship spaces, and what I would now describe as “transitional worship” events, for some...

The Failure of Church Worship

The Failure of Church Worship

The Failure of Church Worship   A Worship Leader leads worship. A Worship Director directs worship. A Worship Producer produces worship.   As a Pastor, I haven’t found any of the above terms helpful in describing what I do. The “care-of-souls-function” of worship, implies a broader range of nuanced activity than lead, direct, produce, design, or even do.   As a Pastor, my role includes encouraging, equipping, teaching,...

The Creative Process

The Creative Process

  Every one of us is filled with imagination, creativity, and ingenious ability. We need to recognize this about ourselves because it is foundational to who we are as humans, and, the fact is, everything we do and think is connected to what we believe.  Our theological belief about God and our ontological (big word meaning “being”) belief about who we are comes out in everything we do. Whatever comes out of or goes into our five...

Ancient to Modern: Tenebrae

As we approach the Easter season, I wanted to bring an often unknown but very powerful type of service to your attention. Practiced since medieval times, the Tenebrae service can be a powerful expression and meditation on Christ’s sacrifice. The Tenebrae service takes place during Maundy Thursday or Good Friday. Though this service is usually practiced by more Liturgical denominations, I believe it can easily be adapted to work in any...
