Mike (Torn From Red)
Today we talked about Worship in the final week of the “Mythbusters” series. There are worship teams, houses of worship, worship albums, etc…but no one seems to be able to agree exactly what Worship “is”. Jesus said when talking to the Samaritan woman by the well (John 4:4-42) that God wants worshippers who “Worship in Spirit and in Truth”. To please God in worship we need to do the “Right thing…for the right reasons”. The problem with “judging” worship…is that it shouldn’t be about us. Just because we happen to enjoy a particular style of music, doesn’t mean it’s “Good worship”. The Question is “Does it Please God?”. Worship is not just music. Worship can be neither “contemporary or traditional”. (Everything that is “traditional” today was once “contemporary”…everything that is “contemporary” today will one day be considered “traditional). If you want to truly do “traditional worship” you should probably do like Abraham did…build an alter…sacrifice an animal..and Give God 10% of everything you have. I’m just sayin’
All new Torn From Red on Stage. New lineup (3 piece). New Songs. New Sound…I really enjoyed it. The “new” TFR is heavy and raw…looking forward to hearing more from these guys. Really enjoyed the acoustic song “Not the same” at the end also…
Met lots of new people today…Thanks for telling your friends about actionchurch. We have done zero advertising since this time last year…yet the word is still spreading.
I had 3 separate “talks” to prepare for this week…and a lot of painting to do as well…yet I felt really “ready” to speak this morning. I am so thankful that I can go to God and say, “I don’t get this…can you help me understand this”?… you can also…and then you really won’t need me. Think of it as “Bypassing the middle man”. :-)
Who knew that “Scrap booking” could sound “dirty”?
I’m thinking about giving Josiah an “off stage” mike…should I? Or should he just continue to “yell at me” during the sermon?
There were 3 “macs” in the “tech pit” this week. But my pc was still doing most of the “work”. Go figure.
I am really excited about next month in actionkidz…they are gonna do an “actionkidz bootcamp” during the Revolution series… I wish I could be back there sometimes!
Some cool really “behind the scenes” stuff is happening that just may allow us to take actionchurch to “the next level” Pray that God will continue to “make a way” for us to Grow.
I love our crew…I think it would be worth coming on Sunday mornings just to do set-up. Nah…not really…but it is a lot of fun.
Yes, we did have a VERY hairy shirtless man in our video this morning.
Yes, we did show a video of Santa being blown out of the chimney with explosives.
Yes…that’s just another day at actionchurch.
I can’t wait to start the Revolution series…I cannot believe we have been doing this almost a year now. I feel so blessed to be part of actionchurch.
