“Do you see what we’ve got? An unshakable kingdom! And do you see how thankful we must be? Not only thankful, but brimming with worship, deeply reverent before God. For God is not an indifferent bystander. He’s actively cleaning house, torching all that needs to burn, and he won’t quit until it’s all cleansed. God himself is Fire”

- Hebrews 12:29

God has always been a fan of fire. All throughout the scriptures it has consistently been one of the main ways He chooses to reveal Himself. As Psalm 104:4 says it, ” He makes winds his messengers, flames of fire his servants.” It’s a tool used by the King to make His presence known; to demonstrate His power. Whether it’s with Moses and the burning bush, Shadrach Meshach and Abednego, or Elijah on Mt. Carmel….there is just something about fire.

Yes! Okay, that would a pretty boring blog post, so allow me to digress. I’ve been in church pretty much my whole life. Admittedly, my church experience, as with most of us, is limited to a pretty narrow stream.

Image is really important in a band. Image is not important on a worship team.
A band is typically the same people all the time. A worship team should be different people a lot of the time.

Renewed Imagination

Jordan Frye —  June 4, 2014

Often literal, linear, and self-explanatory images or stories or songs can help us better understand the world around us. They clearly paint in large brushstrokes a certain truth about who we are, and provide solutions for the condition of things we may not understand.

“That new song has such a killer melody! I love how it builds into the chorus and that bridge section really explodes!”

Songs that sing great and sound great really grab our attention. It’s how we are made. We naturally connect to catchy melodies. And depending on how we are hardwired, we might be more inclined to sing a great melody than a great lyric. Raise your hand if you’ve ever caught yourself singing along with a pop song on the radio without really thinking about what you are saying. I’m guilty!

You Are Loved

Chris Vacher —  April 24, 2014

“You are loved.”

My pastor always ends letters to our congregation this way.

You are loved.
