My thinking is to explore ways to stretch the idea of worship beyond just signing a song. Why? For a couple of reasons. First, I can’t seem to recruit a worship team or worship leader and I am not gifted in that area. Second, because worship extends much farther and wider than just singing songs. I’m exploring ways for preteens to engage in interactive worship experiences.
This is a new world for me. I asked my friend Sean Sweet, who hosts the Preteen Leaders Conference, if he could share an idea.
Here’s what Sean said:
I played the first 2 and a half minutes of part of the video that Jim used – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vCO210XKTh4 – as an example for the preteens, and then played a song for them to reflect and create in the same way on paper. I used House of God, Forever by Jon Foreman and had the words on the screen. They created some pretty cool stuff – some using words and some using pictures, but all reflecting on the idea in the song.
I love that idea so much that I’m going to use it this Wednesday night. Good stuff!
