dirty deeds... and the dunderchief


the day i tried to win

i got asked to lead music for northminster's high school experience earlier in the week. it'd be just like doing music at young life, from what i understand... far be it from me to think i could follow in the mighty brooke trisler's footsteps there... i'm going to turn them down, unfortunately, because it's on sunday nights and i have new leader training and vandelay then and i'm committed to both of them.

thinking about it got me really excited, though. i guess deep down i do miss being in a place like that, relating to people in that context. i miss being a young life leader. NLT is just as good, different, an absolute blast. i could do it again pretty easily, i think - serving God in that way would energize me, light a passion in me that hasn't been there often since i left last year.

remember talking about worship and church a ways back? recently i've been exploring the music i have that drives me emotionally to reconnect with God, that makes me stop and smile and direct my thoughts heavenward. as much as i enjoy music it'd be silly to think that there wasn't plenty of it that led me to worship - it just doesn't happen to be the stuff they play at the 10am service at Lifespring. the repetitive, sugary acoustic-folk doesn't stop my breath like blindside, like matisyahu, like bob marley, P.o.D., further seems forever, playdough, crowder, five iron. i can be sitting here at work and i shuffle to Caught A Glimpse and it cuts a swath through the entirety of my being and God and I are talking all of a sudden. my mood changes, my heart races.

side note: please patch your windows machines today. this month's Microsoft security bulletin is chock full of remote code execution vulnerabilities. argh.

I hear you. I miss YL sometimes too.

i'm with you on worship music. the music that pushes me to talk to God or affects me spiritually is usually not worship music in church, and 90% of the time is "secular".
