Honoring Christ In Film And Animation-Day 2

Savor Let’s build off yesterday’s idea of seeing God with the eyes of our hearts. Let’s continue hanging off every stroke of creation’s artistry. Let’s now savor him.  One of the most visual books of the Bible, and rightly so, is Revelation.  God cannot communicate his beauty to us simply in script. It has to come to us in surround sound. Read Revelation 1:1-3: The revelation of Jesus Christ, which...

Honoring Christ In Film And Animation-Day 1

SEE All that we see in creation is in essence a video, animation, or illustration of the mind of God. Think about the visual nature of the Bible. The symbols. The signs. Even Jesus himself—creation’s Master Painter and Word. Jesus is the one who dares to come into his own painting and put on flesh to show us what the Father’s like. Genesis begins with video imagery. The Spirit hovers over the waters, and thus speaks. Speaking takes...

Honoring Christ In Hymnody-Day 1

My good friend Lester Ruth is a super nerd. As a super nerd, he dissected the language of our Christian Music’s Top 40 list over the last 50 years, and compared it to the language of the hymns of our faith over the last 4,000 years. He found many striking and almost sickening realities, but I will share just a few that may help us in our study here. First, he found that Trinitarian language has all but disappeared from our TOP 40...

Honoring Christ In Audio Mixing-Day 3

Singing Savior The Bible tells us that when Jesus came up out of the waters of Baptism he heard a voice from heaven saying, “this is my Son, in whom I’m well pleased.” Now let’s couple this occurrence together with a couple visual images in order to make one big point. First, consider the singing of the birds in light of Jesus’ Baptism. Research has shown that where birds are present and singing, things grow and flourish. Where birds...

Honoring Christ In Audio Mixing-Day 2

Hear Jesus says, “to those who have ears let them hear.” In Bible times, hearing was a necessity, even over that of the other four senses. Only about 2% of the population could read, and so they heard information. Fun Fact … did you know, that sound resonates in the brain faster than through sight? It also enters first through the spine. It rouses the work of the body before the mind. Sounds educate people differently than do...

Theological Sound A study was done in which gardens were planted in different and yet identical greenhouse environments. The only thing that varied from greenhouse to greenhouse, was the music.Various boom boxes were placed next to the plants to serenade them with tunes as they grew. One greenhouse played classical. Another, metal. Another, rock. Another, pop etc. By the end of the experiment, the only plants thriving were the ones...

WMC Podcast, #196: Paul Baloche, Part 1 – Worship Leading

Paul Baloche Over the 10 years of this podcast we have often spoken of our admiration for Paul Baloche.

You would be hard pressed to find a worship songwriter who has had more of an impact on modern worship than this guy. In part 1 of our 2 part interview with Paul, we talk about worship leading and Paul shares with us some very...

WMC Podcast, Episode #195: What do you do when your church wants to meet a justice need, but the neighborhood doesn’t support you?

What do you do when your church wants to meet a justice need, but the neighborhood doesn’t support you? One of the harshest criticisms against the church has been that we don’t do enough to take care of the hurting and the poor. I’ve heard it many times. I’ve probably even said it many times. But, what happens when your church wants to step into that gap and help meet a justice need, but you’re met with...
