The Heart of the Matter

“What is this blog going to be about,” you ask? “Will it be a negative, critical blog or one full of constructive ideas that will help me in my worship experience?” Well, hopefully, it will not be just a negative “venting” forum, although there will be ideas that you may not agree with! Instead, my hope for this new blog is to get you thinking about ways in which you can enhance your worship experience while perhaps squelching some stereotypes that have been coming to the forefront lately in many churches.

Let’s remember this: God has not changed and His desire for all of us is that we may worship Him in sprit and in truth! The methods may vary from church to church, but if the ones who are supposed to be worshipping are not doing that, then the entire premise of the goal is in vain! God is not as interested in the style of music or method we use to worship Him as He is in the “heart of the matter”…our hearts turned towards Him with love and abandon to His will! When He is Lord of all in our lives, our worship will be centered on Him and will bring delight to Him.

This blog will address issues such as styles of worship, trends that are emerging, some practical hints for musicians, as well as some practical things I have learned in my 30 plus years of private instruction. Certainly I have found in my years as a pianist and concert artist that there are things that work and some that just plain don’t! I hope you will enjoy this little blog I am starting and feel free to give me your comments and any ideas you may have for content. I welcome these! Remember, always be a worshipper, because He loves to hear your praises!
