From Lyrics to Lead Licks

So this weekend I'm not leading worship. I will, however, be on stage. I'm playing lead guitar. This is something that I don't get to do very often. It stretches me, but in a good way. And best of all, it's FUN! I can forget about lyrics and liturgy and just rock out. We had rehearsal last night and it was a blast. My chops aren't what they should be or what they used to be, but I could get it back pretty quickly if I worked at it. I held my own last night and the band sounded great!

I think sometimes it's nice to just be in the background and be able to lose yourself in the music. Lots of times I find that I can even worship more freely when I'm just playing in the band. I wonder if other leaders, no matter what they're leading, find it refreshing to just be a part of the team sometimes. No pressure - just one of the guys. Doing your part, carrying you weight, and just having fun.

By no means would I ever want to stop leading worship. It's what God has called me to do. Just some thoughts. On a side note, I want to give a shout out to my team last night. I love these people. They came prepared and rocked it out. It should be another great weekend.
