A few months ago I became acquainted with the blog search engine technorati.com, and learned that it searched 14.2 million weblogs. I checked it yesterday and it was up to 20.7 million. That’s a lot of blogs. Someone said there’s a new blog every second. Personally, I think that’s probably conservative. “Who has time to read all this stuff?” I ask myself after spending 30 minutes reading blogs.
And here I am adding one more blog to the world. How did I get here? Let me explain…
From 1999-2003 I wrote a column called “Worship Matters” for crosswalk.com. When I stopped writing, Crosswalk kindly reran the series. As the second run came to a close, I considered writing columns again. However, a good friend informed me that the Internet world had changed significantly in the last 5 years, and that a blog would be a better vehicle for communicating. So here I am.
I plan to primarily share thoughts on worship and music, but will also recommend resources that have helped me gain a more biblical understanding in those areas. I’ll also talk about specific ways I’ve applied principles in my local church, Covenant Life. Although I’m not taking public comments at this point, feel free to e-mail me with questions or feedback. If you’re a worship leader, pastor, Christian musician, or simply a follower of Jesus Christ who wants to deepen your love for the Savior, I hope you’ll find this blog helpful.
