Just an FYI for my few readers out there. This blog has alternately been alive and dead for a long time now, but it still serves as a great outlet and a great platform for discussion topics and the like as it relates to worship arts. I’ve had posts on gear, leadership, theology, team dynamcis and other assorted ideas. I think those are great things…important things.

But.

What has been burning in my heart for so long can be summed up in an something that appeared (very curiously) in David Crowder’s “A Collision” album. In the track titled “A Conversation”, David responds to a question about the significance of the album art, which was a scientific drawing of an atom. He relates that the atom drawing is an incomplete picture of what an atom really looks like, and our picture of worship is much the same. Whether it was meant as a joke or not, I tend to agree.

Our picture of worship is tremendously incomplete. It is not helped along by people who are desperate for the picture to stay the same. You know who those people are…especially if you are one of them.

The course adjustment for this blog is in response to that idea…our picture of worship is incomplete. From this day forth (incomplete post series’ notwithstanding), the topics in this blog will deal largely with the struggle to explore the dark and undiscovered corners of how we worship our God through the arts, as well as the simple act of worship from a 50,000 ft view. As a part of this change, here is what you can expect to see:

1. Content from other people and websites.
2. A LOT more visual and audio content. We are talking artwork and experiments with sound.
3. A healthy amount of far reaching questions about what is acceptable and desirable in worship.
4. An unhealthy amount of risk-taking.

That last one is intentionally ambiguous. Visit the reworked “About” page for a clear picture of what this is all about.
