I am somewhat new to the blog-iverse. I'm slightly on the older side of the gen-xers and so I find it a little odd to think that I'm sending out some of my own reflections into cyberspace and people might actually read them.
So, I'm going to start slowly. I'm not here so much to throw my own musings out there but rather hear from those of you who are worship leaders in what might be considered emergent settings. (if you don't know what that means, check out www.emergentvillage.com)
I attended the 2006 Theological Conversation @ Yale University this year and there were a number of us music/worship types there. While I made great relationships with all kinds of folks, I found myself wanting to have conversations with worship leaders specifically, just for some cameraderie and to share ideas. Obviously, I didn't think that gathering was an appropriate moment, but I e-mailed Tony Jones about it and asked if there could be a place in the new emergent website for worship leaders. As luck would have it, the new website will have space for such a thing, mostly in the form of what I'm told is "dynamic content" and links to blogs such as this one.
This is me starting the blog.
I'd love to hear from those of you out there who deal with leading your faith communities to experience God in your gatherings through music, art, conversation, justice, and all of life, for as we know, all of life is worship.
