Wedding as Worship Part 4

When Sarah and I were planning our wedding we decided we wanted the event to be first and foremost a service of corporate worship to God and only a wedding on secondary level.

This is the 4th of 7 sections of video from our wedding on March 11th, 2006 to show what that looked like.

Part 4 – Processional:

Not to Us – Chris Tomlin

We had our bridesmaids/groomsmen/parents walk in during Not to Us. At around 1:30 on the video you see my brother, Al, walk in my mom-in-law and then see my best man, Kevin, raising his hands. Al’s not much of a church kid so not really knowing what Kevin was doing he gives Kev a high-five.

One of my favorite moments from that day is at the end of this video when I let the people at my wedding lead me in worship.

The Fun Part About Tomorrow

Tunes: 88 Miles Per Hour
Worship was pretty excellent this morning. I saw some many kewl people I wish I would’ve had more time to talk, the downside of leading worship. Although we played with a guest drummer today who goes to a presbyterian church in midland. He was very talented and when you’re playing bass with a good drummer it just opens up room for the Spirit to come. I swear more people were raising their hands today than normal. I know worship’s not all about people raising their hands but there is a difference between just worshiping God personally and corporate worship where there’s a communal sense that the Spirit is present.

So this band really rocks, you should check them out:

Postmodern, Emergent and other buzz words

Tunes: Mourning September, Glorietta

Went to Kevin and Nikki’s today to pray over the Source and what God will do through that ministry. We were planning out some of the logistics but I found it hard to focus. I was just enjoying being with my friends too much I didn’t want to get “down to work.” I think that’s a good sign for the ministry, after all that’s what the Source is about. It’s about creating community. That community will be centered in God’s word but ultimately the Christian walk all comes down to relationships: with each other and with God. It’s not a set of rules (no matter how much I luv rules) or commands to follow. So even if we have trouble getting down some of the planning details I think we’ll be good because we know how to practice the community we preach. (and we did finally end up logging a few things on the todo list, praise God for Kevin and all those of a task oriented nature)

It’s funny, it just occurred to me that I’m uber task oriented when it comes to the worship team. I always get frustrated if people start talking to much and I always want to work more on the music. I think this has multiple causes. I think I’m more confident in my ability to lead MY kind of worship & Bible study @ the Source than I am leading a different style on Sunday mornings which causes me to feel musically insecure and desiring more practice time.

I think the core of it might be my relationships to the other people on the worship team. I’m ashamed to admit that I don’t even know everyone’s name. Could it be an age difference thing? Could it be because I’m still relatively new?

Hmm, I was feeling a little uneasy earlier tonight. I think I just needed a little bit of overanalyzation to feel comfortable again. ahhhhh.
