Yesterday I led three services. That makes for a very long day. It might explain why I’ve had attacks of narcolepsy today.
Last night I had the great pleasure to be back at Christ Kingdom leading worship. Scott was out of town, and was kind enough to give me the reigns for most of the night. Daniel did a great job bringing the Word (I wish I was as comfortable of a communicator as this guy!). There was trouble confirming that a teaching elder would be around, so we had to forego communion (which was unfortunate, as my friend and elder David Netzorg ended up being there). The really fun thing about leading at Christ Kingdom is that you can tell it is a church planted by a worship leader. The people simply love to worship through music, and are very willing to give the person leading freedom to experiment with new songs and dynamic changes and soforth. It was a really nice feeling of freedom to pull out some old Vineyard rock songs that I hadn’t thought of in a few years and really enjoy making a joyful noise. It was also great to see the people of the church again – how they’ve grown and become a unique body over the first year of public worship. I pray that I’ll be able to be back with them again sometime soon.
