Apathy:
1. absence or suppression of passion, emotion, or excitement.
2. lack of interest in or concern for things that others find moving or exciting

Translation: Apathy equals sitting on your butt.

I wonder how many churches if they closed down would not be missed. For that matter would people even notice they were gone.

Grace teaches us to not be apathetic. Since we have the best Grace of all why do Christians seem so content with Sunday morning and are not even thinking about Mercy, justice and love?

I’m seeing that where I am.

So why?

How do we get people to care?

A few weeks ago I met with some local worship leaders from a few other churches about starting a multi-church worship team. I really believe in the big “C” in church and that unity is really the only way we are going to change the culture in our community. Last week we had our first practice. We have started small and have only told a select few about it just to get something established. In the near future we will be inviting even more churches to jump on board and maybe even springboard into some other things.

Ok back the the practice. God is amazing. This is one talented group of musicians. We have 2 guitars, piano, 2 lead vocals, drums, bass, and sax. Let me tell you this band was tight. We did a few songs that only 1 or 2 of us knew or have even heard and they only took one time to play them because they were amazing.

I am truly floored sometimes at what God can do in us and through us when we actually take up His mission. I am expecting great things here. God has some awesome stuff planned.

Stay tuned for more news, including a facebook fan page, about this band and its hopeful future participation from other area churches. We will be doing worship at this years national day of prayer and I think having a team comprised of musicians from more than one church is really gonna shake things up.
