THAILAND?!

That was my first thought when I first realized that God might be calling me to go to Thailand.  The second thought that followed shortly after, I’m embarrassed to say, was that I would not be able to pick Thailand off a map.  But I know where Thailand is now, which is good, because I am headed there with my Senior Pastor for two weeks in September.  But I should back up and explain how this all happened.

Starting Point Music Camp Worship Band Camp

Worship Band Camp 2019 is in the books!  One of my favorite weeks of the year, Worship Camp takes rising 5th to 10th graders and teaches them to play instruments in a worship band.  Even if the student has never picked up the instrument before, they will be playing pretty successfully in a worship band by the end of the camp.  This was our 4th year and some of our kids have been with us long enough that we are running out of stuff to teach them!  But they help pour into the younger campers and that is great to see.

In church life, you hear the word “worship” used to describe many different aspects of Christianity. Many times it is used as a description of how the entirety of our lives should be lived to please God. Paul was using it this way when he said, “I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship.” (Romans 12:1) Evangelist D.L. Moody famously said that that problem with a living sacrifice is that it keeps crawling off the altar!

Devotional Thoughts Worship

For the past couple of years, I have felt a strong desire to really work on memorizing sections of Scripture. The psalmist says, “I have stored up your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.” (Psalm 119:11) I was envious of those who could call Scripture to mind without having to look it up and was especially motivated by worship leaders who effortlessly used memorized Scripture as part of the transitions between songs or as prayers during their worship time. But until this year, I had really struggled with it.
