Hillsong United Conference
Rain or Shine
Went to the Hillsong United concert tonight with our worship arts peeps. After a trip to Walmart and two $.88 ponchos, Cassie and I were prepared for rain – after all, it did rain all day. But right before the concert, there was a break in the clouds and the rest of the night we had great weather.
Worship vs Concert
I always have struggled with the term “Worship Concert.” Worship, in a church context is worth directed toward God. Concert says entertainment.
If you were to look up the word “entertain” you would see it’s definition as “to hold the attention of.”
Tonight I sang loud.
I stood. I sat. I took pictures. I cried. I shouted. Not to those on stage. But to my God.
Tonight, I redefined “Worship Concert” as I joined the rest of the Church to keep God’s attention.
