    A Return To The Music And Worship Ministry

    Post  Paeter on July 2nd 2015, 12:35 pm

    This Sunday (and the rehearsal tonight) will mark my return to involvement with the ministry at our church that I pastored for two years and served on staff in for two years before that as well as volunteered for a handful of years before being on staff. I've got a lot of history with this ministry, but it's been a loooong time since I've even helped to lead worship. All kinds of ghosts from the past and nerves will be among my enemies this weekend.

    I'd be grateful for prayer that God will fix my mind on him and not on myself or what anyone thinks of me. (What a horrible irony to be combating self-focus during worship!)

    I'm looking forward to being useful in that ministry again and love our worship pastor (she was actually my intern many moons ago!) and the values and priorities she has brought that this ministry has needed for a long time. I just don't want any of me to get in the way of what God wants me to do and focus on as I help lead. And I want to be useful in helping our music to soften hearts and help them be vulnerable and engage authentically with the text of the songs and the scripture I'll be reading.

    Thanks!

    Praying for you brother.
    Thank you for your willingness to serve God in this way.
    Your perseverance in ministry and the local church is a source of deep encouragement for me (and I assume others as well).

    Thank you all for your prayers.

    The morning went very well, and while it was still a battle to keep my mind in the right place I felt it was a good first step and think my focus and mental state will mostly improve going forward.

    I appreciate you guys!
