Worship Leaders | What You See From The Stage

What you see from the stage is everything in worship leadership. And what you see from that stage has everything to do with what you want to see, need to see, or have learned to see.

When you are on a stage, you have to see the congregation in front of you as infinitely more than an audience or a crowd.

You have to see the Community of Christ, the Body of Christ, and the Bride of Christ in their eyes.

If you don’t, you will disrespect the platform, the role, and the mission of the worship leader.

And if you don’t deeply see yourself as part of the “We” in the room, and posture the music and its execution in that spirit, the Us-Them narrative you communicate from that stage will toxify the environment of worship over time.

Sheltering Mercy: Prayers Inspired by the Psalms

Sheltering Mercy, along with its companion volume, Endless Grace, helps us rediscover the rich treasures of the Psalms—through free-verse prayer renderings of their poems and hymns—as a guide to personal devotion and meditation.

The church has always used the Psalms as part of its prayer life, and they have inspired countless other prayers. This book contains 75 prayers drawn from Psalms 1-75, providing lyrical sketches of what authors Ryan Smith and Dan Wilt have seen, heard, and felt while sojourning in the Psalms. Each prayer is a response to the Psalms written in harmony with Scripture. These prayers help us quiet our hearts before God and welcome us into a safe place amid the storms of life.

This artful, poetic, and classic devotional book features compelling custom illustrations and foil-stamped hardcover binding, offering a fresh way to reflect on and pray the Psalms.
