My pastor recently preached from the Gospel text of Jesus turning water into wine at the wedding in Cana in Galilee (I encourage you to read it again from John 2). He spoke about Jewish weddings and how they are often loud and raucous affairs. I have only been to one, but can attest that it was quite the party. He then led us through an interesting exercise where we imagined Jesus at the wedding.
Well, it’s that time of year again and I know that many of you are swimming in last-minute choir rehearsals and church presentations. So, in the spirit of a little respite, I thought I’d share with you some lesser-known songs you won’t likely be singing in your church this Sunday, but nonetheless are some of my personal favorites.
While I was in Pennsylvania earlier this year, I got to catch up with my old friend Milton. I haven’t seen him in over ten years and I welcomed this opportunity. Milton grew up with my wife in a prominent Southern Baptist Church in Nashville. I met him as a high school student. Milton is now a professor of education at Messiah College in Grantham, PA. (He also writes a blog here).
Our church is experimenting with the idea of worship leaders co-leading for the weekend assemblies (translation: church services). Basically, a worship leader with experience teams up with a worship leader with less experience. I think that the idea is to invest in the future leadership of the church.

He leads worship for our assemblies sometimes, but his primary duty (or at least one of them) is to mentor us volunteers in this thing called worship leading.
