Useful Resources #1

Worshipping Trinity by Robin Parry is an amazing resource whether you are a lead worshipper or simply a worshipper this book will challage and inspire you to re-shape your worship. In writing songs, choosing songs, preaching, praying and every day worship Robin reminds us we need to bring back out focus of the godhead three in one.

Father, Spirit, Son are equally worhty of our praise and this resource wil help to make that so in our worship.

I can't commend it enough so please just take my word for it and buy a copy.

Much Less of me Much More of You

Great, it seems as though we are finally getting the message that we really need to focus less on ourselves and much much more on our maker, the God who is worthy of all praise, whom the stars and the sky and the trees and sea exist to glorify!
Don't get me wrong there is a place for intmate, personal worship songs - but God only 'meets with us,' 'blesses us,' and 'teaches us' by his GRACE.
So we need to continue to shift our focus and remember that God is the one we should be singing about. Father, Spirit and Son!

Useful Resources #2

There are a number of resources that are great for shifting our focus. For example I am not but I know I AM by Louis Giglio is a great and inspiring book by a great author, but what I really want to recommend is Arriving by Chris Tomlin. His song writing has recently really shifted to focus much more on God and much less on us.

Awesome God

One thing I can really recommend, as a worshipper, is to look into the universe maybe a bit more broadly than you normally would (assuming, like me you are not an astronomer). The Christian astronomers that I have spoken to have many times said that looking at other planets, solar systems and nebulas etc, can be incredibly awe inspiring. I’ve discovered that you don’t need to know all there is to know about space, which is nice. All you really need to do is to get hold of some pictures and you will be awestruck. The wider creation teaches us a great deal about God’s intricacy. Any closer to the sun we’d burn up, any further away and we would freeze – just one example of how perfect our God is.

Tabernacle Worship

Tabernacle WORSHIP
48 Hours non-stop, God glorifying worship.
This is a vision I had about 2 years ago when reading 'Audience of One' by Jeremy & Connie Sinnott. I beleive it to be an exciting opportunity to worship God non-stop, to give Him the glory and to seek His face. I strongly beleive that this will give people God's heart for the lost as they seek His will - letting worship be the fuel for missions flame.

I am praying that this will be just a tiny taste of heaven on earth where people are welcome to come and worship as often as they like and for as long as they like.
