Dan, one of our Ministry Apprentices is in the process of developing a youth band.  A couple of weeks ago they started regular rehearsals, and tonight I popped in to share a quick thought with them.  I thought my notes might be of interest to you:

  • We want perfection – people need a strong, clear lead, but we want perfection because it is the minimum we should offer in worship.
  • But this is not at the expense of our heart – we must be worshippers to lead others in worship.
  • Check out Luke 10:38-43
  • Mary & Martha – Martha wasn’t wrong in giving hospitality, she was wrong to let it dominate her.  It’s important to stop and sit at the feet of our Lord.
  • You must go with what you believe God is leading you to do – both corporately and individually.

They’re an amazing set of young people and I’m really looking forward to seeing how they develop as a band.

Married to the amazing Sarah and raising Jakey, Daniel, Amelia, Josh & Jonah in our blended family. Passionate for Jesus, social work & sport.

  1. The West Wing is without a doubt one of my favorite TV shows of all time. There are actually some amazing parallels between Season 7 and the current Presidential candidates here in the States.

  2. Thanks for the comment Justin. Yeah it certainly has parallels, particularly to those of us on the other side of ‘the pond’ where there hasn’t been such an emphasis on policy but on the way the candidates are running their campaigns.

  3. Hi Chris – now I know! I mean really know…a man of God. It was the West Wing comments that did it. Just having a cup of tea with your pa…he mentioned that you were a fan. Hope you and Hannah are both well. Have a good Christmas.
