(INTRO) The Core Verbs of ADORE THE LORD
Back in 2014, I heard the Lord speak to me. My wife and I were taking a dawn-patrol flight with everyone sleeping on the plane except me. He said to get paper and write down all the areas regarding Worship that had been percolating in my thoughts of late.
I had just spent the last few years training worship leaders in Mexico, worked with some major ‘worship-leader’ people on some projects (recordings, gatherings, plans), was playing in occasional bands and events, and had been rooting around the Scriptures asking the question, “what is worship, REALLY?” With many of my good friends, all involved in ‘modern worship’, there had been intense conversation about the “what’s next?” in ‘modern worship’.
There’s some real apprehension out there: surely, something way different is coming?
The flight was bumpy, and I didn’t want to disturb my sleeping neighbors, so I looked in my backpack at my feet… darn! Didn’t pack any notebook on this trip. Wait! Here’s a few scraps of paper with some space…
By the time we landed, an entire entity had been born, scribbled around the edges and spaces, filling up every scrap. What is it? The spine of a book? A course curriculum? A devotional? Art project? Topic guide for a school of worship? A website?
I asked the Lord what to do with this ragamuffin parchment of ideas and incendiary thoughts…? He said organize, study, expand, pray, wait, angst, read broadly, study church history, pray, study root words, wait on Him, scour the Scriptures, refine… with all the fruits of the Spirit.
ADORE was born. Since 2014, it has grown large.
I am offering the Core Lessons up on a blog-web site, free of charge.
