Okay, tell me what you love and hate about being a worship leader st Christmas.
Your absolute worst experience and your favourite time of all time.
The thing I hate is when the pastor says, 'We need to talk about the Christmas carol service'. Something inside me just dies. I think it's because my husband and I were converted at and through a Christmas carol concert done WELL (ie with the Gospel message central) and since then, so many we've been involved in have been wasted opportunities for mission. People like their traditions and they like to do things the way they've always been done. And generally, the fluff outweighs the truth.
Odd moments still happen that I love, though. Like 4 people singing parts for 'Let all mortal flesh keep silence' in a darkened room lit by candle-light...hair on the back of my neck stood up for that one.
Over to you.
