Hard to believe it, but the conference I’ve been working on for the past year has finally come and gone. I’m one tired, happy, grateful, amazed guy. God has been very kind.
About 1700 folks came from all over to learn what the Psalms tell us about worshiping God, attend seminars designed to address specific practical areas, and fellowship with like-minded believers. We laughed, we cried, we sang, we listened, we studied, we played, we grew—all for the glory of the Savior. We also released our new Psalms CD, which I think is one of our best so far.
In the next few weeks I’ll be posting some reflections about the event, as well as links to a number of the resources. I’ve posted the song lists over on the WorshipGod08 website. For those who couldn’t make it (and I guess for those who did), we’ll be making all the main sessions and recorded seminar messages available on the Sovereign Grace website for free download. Right now all of the main session messages (except Friday night) can be downloaded here.
One of my highlights, and there were many, was realizing that my entire family was involved in the event. My wife, Julie, designed the stage, mixed for four of the sessions, and taught a seminar on Maintaining Priorities in and Around the Worship Team. My 21 year old daughter, Chelsea, who serves as my assistant, administrated the entire event and did an absolutely amazing job. My two sons and oldest daughter, Jordan, Devon, and Megan, were involved as musicians for various sessions. My 19 year old, Brittany, oversaw lyric projection and photography. And my 13 year old, Mckenzie, attended. I’m overwhelmed with gratefulness to the God whose faithfulness endures “to all generations” (Ps. 100:5).
