"This is nice.  I wish there were more songs written specifically to open (or close) a worship service. Only thing I'd suggest fiddling with is that it's basically the same chord pattern all the way through (and it's weird that…"

Blue Christmas

Posted on December 22, 2008 at 3:26pm 1 Comment

Last night, our church had our first-ever "Blue Christmas" service. Here's an article that explains the idea:

Although I'm not playing in the worship band right now, I am still on the worship committee at church, and back in October or November I brought up the idea, and when I found out that the pastor was up for doing the service, I signed on to do the music (guy & guitar style). Our church has connections to… Continue

One song based upon Chopin (of several) uploaded - titled "Just Believe" - the lyrics are available - if I can be so bold, what do you think?

H Charles--

Definitely get together!  I work at Intel on Chandler Blvd., so one of these days we'll connect!

Hey Charles, I hope all is well with you. Retired but not out I hope.

You are a wise & experienced Man of God. Your wealth of experience is essential for new worship leaders to glean from. Even tho the songs are different today the key purpose is still the same. I really appreciate reading your comments to songwriters, outlining your thoughts about songs.

I have a similar outlook.

Worship songs = Singing to God.

Praise songs = Singing about God.

Testimony = personal story about experience.

Inspirational songs = encouragement to the church.

Keep commenting & being effective. This network needs your voice.

Hey Charles, just read one of your posts in the forums...I hope you're finding a place where you can minister in worship. Can't let these "retirements or something" go on forever, you know!
Blessings. Rick
