worship recap – hands

We had a great Sunday this week.  It was a busy weekend, but Sunday went off without a hitch and I think a lot of people were touched.  I went to a C&MA Youth Conference on Friday and Saturday, Pastor Dave and his sons Daniel and Dean held a concert on Saturday night called “Loudhouse” and then we all played on Sunday morning (except for Dean).  On top of that, we had a big band and I didn’t play an instrument.  That makes it hard for our sound guys who ran sound on Saturday night as well.  All of this together made for a kind of sketchy Sunday morning music wise, but it went off without a hitch.

I’m not sure if it was all of the late nights, the large band or the fact that I didn’t play guitar, but Sunday morning felt awkward to me musically.  For some reason the stage was really quiet.  I don’t know about you, but I hate a quiet stage.  It’s hard to get a good feel for what’s going on and even harder to follow.  Another thing that was difficult for me was the fact that my band mates (does that sound British or what?) challenged me to lead worship without an instrument.  That could be the reason I had trouble “feeling” the music.  On top of that I never know what to do with my hands.  This is how I felt…

Despite my own feelings of insecurity, it was a good morning.  It’s always fun to try new things and even more exciting to have Dave and Daniel (father and son) playing on stage together.  Here’s what it looked like.
