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...

‘Look Along’ a Baby to Celebrate Advent

Babies’ are innocent and cuddly, yet they can have the most unsettling cry. Maybe this is what causes the Psalmist in Psalm 8 to say: Out of the mouth of babies and infants, you have established strength because of your foes,     to still the enemy and the avenger. Even in this verse it implies that there’s a mastery, both in purity and in gusto that makes babies so calm and composed, but yet warrior like in their threat...

The expression church year refers to the regular sequence of days,...

Responsorial Psalm 118: This Is the Day the Lord Has Made!

  Let me begin by saying, “Buckle your seat belts–the holiday season is officially upon us.” While it’s easy to be immediately sucked into Christmas plans, gifts and decorations, Thanksgiving is a holiday that I choose to engage in, even if it has a smaller bling factor. Thanksgiving centers us in reflection and gratefulness. The Psalms, specially Psalm 118, offer practical words and actions we can use to...

Preparing For Easter: Becoming Invisible

Easter is one of the big ones.  Every church across the nation is in the midst of preparations for their own Easter services.  Every pastor combing over page after page of sermon notes, volunteers are planning egg hunts, and worship leaders are piecing together setlists.  There is so much detail to pay attention too that I feel my head may actually implode at times.  It can all stack up and completely exhaust us weeks before the...

Does Your Family Miss Easter While You’re Working At Church?

My 6 year old loves holidays. I mean, really loves holidays. He will jump out of his bed, sprint into the kitchen and announce, “HAPPY FLAG DAY!!!” We then spend some time looking up the meaning and origin of the holiday for some fun learning. Not joking, this happens for every holiday they mark on the calendar. But I already know what’s going to happen on Easter: “Mom! Mom! It’s Easter! Happy Easter!” I’m sure I’ll reply, “Hurry up!...

It’s the stuff of church staffer dreams.  The parking lot is jammed, teams of coffee-amped volunteers are bustling, the band is running through that great new song, and very soon, crowds of regulars, guests, and returners will begin pouring through the doors.  It’s Easter Sunday, a full house, and the energy is intoxicating. In almost every church across the country, Easter brings more of what we all want most – people.  That’s...
