Worship on the Front Lines

Posted on July 1, 2013 at 11:05pm 1 Comment

Worship leading is generally viewed as a safe occupation. We don't fear torture or imprisonment. We're not facing down cannibalistic tribes or hungry lions. We may encounter a surly drummer, a barbed critique, or a battle over where our equipment is stored, but nothing life threatening. There are days when our music feels monumentally important, when the sound filling the room cuts right through our souls, the congregation is pouring out praise to God, and everything feels right. Then there are… Continue

Without Love

Posted on May 14, 2010 at 9:16pm 1 Comment

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. -1 Corinthians 13:1 (NIV)

I’ve been thinking about this verse as it relates to worship music, both as a music leader and a congregation member. What it boils down to for me, in a musical context, is this:

Whatever I do, no matter how beautiful or excellent, if I do it without love I’m… Continue

Download/stream the podcast here- Episode 27: You Are My Joy

This song is a prayer for help through the valleys of life and faith, and a celebration of the hope that we have in Christ, even in the midst of pain.

You Are My Joy


This world's empty promises have left me feeling lost in a lie

All the pleasures…

I read a C.S. Lewis essay recently that got me thinking about the nature of worship, and our times of praise in music. Titled “Dogma and the Universe,” most of the essay addresses the question: “How can any system of belief that claims to be absolute and unchanging stay relevant in the face of our ever expanding knowledge about the universe?” He argues that no amount of increase in knowledge about the world around us can ever make the fundamental truths of Christianity any less true. They are… Continue

Download/stream the podcast here- Episode 26: O Beautiful Mystery

We will never be able to understand everything about God- He is, by nature, beyond anything a human can comprehend. This song celebrates both God’s endless scope, and His gracious love for us.

O Beautiful Mystery

Thanks Joel. I like your music - you seem to be mature beyond your years : ) For some tips on songwriting, I've written some stuff on my Blog page at my website about songwriting so, hopefully, you might find something helpful there. Keep up the good work!

Hey Joel, I am also blessed/cursed with eclectic taste in musical styles. I was a composition major while in school, but switched to a BA in Music because it would take about a year less to achieve (I wanted to get OUT). Did you check out my Gregorian rock tune, "Sanctus"? It's the only tune I've posted so far. It combines two styles that I haven't heard attempted before.

Joel. I was touched and inspired by your blog on "Why Am I Doing This". That was just awesome. Maybe that time was like Moses' 40 years in the dessert. In my mind without a doubt, Moses was better leader at age 80 than age 40.

=) Rock on.
