A Couple Tract Testimonies

It’s been a while since I’ve given any updates on the blog. Partly, God has simply been bringing us less exciting ministry lately; things like counseling, encouraging church members, and learning to speak Romanian just don’t make for interesting blog updates. And partly, we’ve been taking less risks in evangelism; we’ve been doing a lot of safe stuff like passing out tracts or talking one-on-one, which is good but tends not to attract those crazy cool testimonies we all like to read and I like to write about.

Anyhow, while I don’t have any wild, supernaturally-awesome testimonies, I do want to share three stories from the last week and a half.

It was 9:30 pm after the Easter Sunday service, and I was on my way home. It was a beautiful night, and as I passed by the park, I felt a pull to just go sit there for a while.

The Heart of Worship

Since moving out here and finding myself the only guy who can play a guitar and come every week to church, I’m often in the position of leading worship.  This whole process has made me realize I need lots and lots of training.  It certainly would have been more wise to seek training earlier, when I was in Spring Green working alongside an awesome man of God and worship leader, Derek Miller, the pastor at Cornerstone Church of Spring Green.

But… I didn’t.

So anyhow, I’ve become an avid listener of the Worship Leader Podcast, where I get a bunch of practical advice about how to lead worship but also some great laughs and awesome Australian accents.

A few weeks ago, they did a podcast titled “The Heart of Worship” that was just awesome.  It’s especially relevant to worship leaders and others in ministry, but any Christian will find it challenging.

Check it out!
