This was a great reality check for me and something I think we should all consider as worship leaders.
As a worship leader, I desire to empower others to engage in continuous worship throughout the week, not just for the hour we're gathered together on Sunday mornings. I desire for this to be true of my church as written in the blog post: "What occurs on Sunday is an overflow of what has already been occurring during the week with the added benefit of getting to share it with others. The weekly gathering is then the culmination of our daily occurrences."
But if I were to be honest, I don't think I'm at this point as a leader yet. Would love to hear your ideas on how to become this kind of leader in terms of practical ways to lead toward this end during a service.
Worship leaders: Through your leading, are you creating dependents or are you empowering others to engage with God throughout the week?
It also begs the question of me: Is MY worship on Sunday an overflow of how I've engaged with God throughout my week? What about you?
