praise and worship
This wonderful short video from Jesuslifetogether.com perfectly illustrates the vision I described on Sunday for our services. When we start our service we are not just singing through a list of songs, we come together to worship the Lord using the songs as vehicles to help us enter in to the presence of the Lord. Jesus said His Father is looking for us to worship Him in spirit and in truth, John 4:23.
Here are three videos of songs we are planning to teach in the congregation over the coming few weeks. The first, God my Rock, written by Paul Baloche and Brenton Brown, is based on Psalms 61 and 62 and is a declaration of Gods strength in our weakness (the song actually begins 5 minutes 42 seconds into the film).
