Chris Tomlin, Love Ran Red – Review and Giveaway!

My feelings about Chris Tomlin have a fairly wide variation.  I realize that I am often in the minority in worship circles, nevertheless, I will once again offer my opinions about the latest Chris Tomlin album, arriving soon at a church near you. I will say that I was pleasantly surprised to find a little more variation in approach on this album. There are some typical formulaic approaches to some of the songs, but it was better than...

5 Tips for Leading Worship In a Rapidly Changing World

As I’ve said in the past, we often wake up to a world that has changed over night.

I remember back in the day that we actually had our own social network on Ning. Those were the days. When we started WMC, the iPhone had just come out less than...

We need to remember what Jesus did for us on the Cross. It’s an amazing story and an amazing sacrifice. Without the sacrifice of Christ on the cross, we have nothing. The cross must be central to our churches, our worship and our communion. However,...

We are seeing more and more churches turn from a focus on using worship as the wrapping paper for the sermon and the bait to get people in the doors. What’s it going to look like? Let’s talk about it and see. Why don’t you chime in?...
