Waking up

So the closing out of the Jon and Joel youth ministry legacy at Hinson wasn't half bad. Our worship set definitely surprised the congregation (wait, we can sing with passion?), but it was a pleasant surprise. In an unexpected way, I think it woke up some of the folks who had been living in passive worship. Worship isn't passive. Worship is active. Worship requires our entire lives.

Reminded me of some place in the Bible where it talks about, "wake up, oh sleeper; rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you." Maybe in some way, worship caused some resurrections today. I definitely woke up after a few songs. I may have hit the drums harder than I ever have before on a Sunday morning!

By the way, at the bottom of these posts, there's a comment link. This allows you to join the story: ask questions, leave sarcastic remarks, or just say hi! Use it freely, wisely, and tactfully!


  1. I Loved the worship on Sunday! It was the best we've had there!!

  2. I am really sad I missed seeing you rock out. You are an awesome drummer and know how to use it for God.
