In talking with Alice Adams the other day it got me thinking about my own musical journey and how special it is to both worship everyday and also to play for others. Alice shared with me how much they they are benefiting from the Worship Guitar Class program.
What caught my attention was when she mentioned that her kids play once a month with a Christian bluegrass group. I remembered that as a young player I used to play once a month at hootenannies. These were casual musical evenings in private homes.
Some of you are Pastors or lead Home Groups. Keep your eyes open for opportunities to invite younger musicians to lead worship. If you are a worship leaders, why not ask less experienced players to join you?
Having a reason and place to play will inspire the younger musician to work at mastering their instrument. And what a great opportunity for us to encourage the next generation of worship leaders!
What I also appreciated about her call was saying that her family started their homeschool day with a praise time using the guitars.
I wanted to encourage you to try to start each day with worship. Some families or individuals can’t do this in the mornings, so in the evening also works well. I think of Stan in Hawaii who worships in the evenings with his family.
