Church Without Sound

Church Without Sound

Imagine church without sound. I do not mean removing things that make noise – sound systems, music, people. I mean imagine experiencing your church as it normally is but not being able to hear anything. Would the non-audible elements be enough to minister to you?

As I’ve traveled the country, I’ve experienced first hand many children’s worship experiences. I’ve also talked to hundreds of leaders about their worship programs. However I’m saddened by what I’ve seen and heard. Here’s why.

7 Highly Effective Biblical Habits of Eagles

7 Highly Effective Biblical Habits of Eagles

One facet of the face of God is an eagle face which each of the four living creatures named as Cherubim had. They are placed around the throne of God to protect its holiness and proclaim the glory of God when it is revealed to them (Ezek 1:3-10; 10:15; Rev 4:6-10). Each time the living [...]
