Next weekend the Regional Ministry Team(RMT) of the Central Baptist Association (CBA) are providing a 'Barnabas Weekend' in the Buckinghamshire Forum. As the name suggests, the purpose is for the RMT to bring some encouragement to the Baptist churches in that particular area. On the Friday evening we are holding a Quiz Night, and then on the Saturday there will be various workshops - Children's /Youth Work, Web sites/communication, Caleb Challenge: working with older people, and I'm doing one on Music in Worship.
There was a time when I did a lot of music and worship stuff, but it's been a while. I'm looking forward to it, and giving some thought to what I want to say to what is likely to be a fairly diverse group who are involved in music and worship.
My aim, in keeping with the weekend, is to encourage the musicians who come, and I have some things to say that I think are important in the present music/worship culture. If you were in my position, what's the one thing you would want to say? I'd love to hear from you on this. I'll return to this.
