Today marks the beginning of our Christmas services at church. I'm full of expectation for what God will do.
Yes, we will spend these next few days basically living at church and there are hundreds of cues and decisions to be navigated-but these are the days we wait for all year. The days where our hearts are a bit softer and bent even more towards heaven.
So to all you worship team friends out there...stay strong and expectant. These are sacred days. Eternities in the balance. Don't get lost in the cue sheets and madness. Rather, be found by the Prince of Peace in every movement. Choose to be present with your team and your community.
Our teams always pray that we would be the first ones transformed by what we sing and say. May it be so. Our days for rest are coming, but for now we work hard to create transcendent space with one purpose only- that many will know the peace, love, hope, and joy that came in baby form on that first Christmas Day.
Standing with you and can't wait to hear all that happens in and through your communities.
