REVIEW: "For the Sake of the World" (Bethel)
...Listening to "For The Sake of the World" from Bethel Music is a pulsing example of a vibrant worship experience and devotional offering of songs; one as intimately aware of God's transcendence as it is celebrating His immanence. When you listen to this new album there is "something" on it -or maybe in it- that takes great music and turns it into songs for nations.
The album begins with a subtle but inviting simmer- the call to worship song "To Our God". Rather than storming the gates of hell, and rousing the emotions of rally, this song performs the combined function of ancient introit, invoking God's welcome, calling all to join the prayer and declaring the intention of the congregation to move towards Him for no other reason than "We'll make His praise glorious, for His name is glorious". From ebb to ecstasy, track one welcomes us to another spectacular album from the folks behind Bethel Music...
...I very much appreciate this album, its musical excellence and its lyrical, thematic and theological attentiveness to both the scriptures and the traditions of its tribal stream from which it comes. I highly recommend "For The Sake of the World". Check this album out- you won't be disappointed! If you are a worship leader in a church that is looking for songs laced with the prayers of revival tones and invocations of God's glory and nearness, you will have an entire cache of new songs to consider here- all worthwhile!
WEBINAR: "How To Stream Your Worship Services Online" - Free Event
With Dan Wilt and Special Guest Kevin Weimer (WorshipStream)
Every church can benefit from streaming their services online. In this webinar we will talk about why churches stream, should it be live or on-demand, one camera versus multiple cameras, and what do you need to get started. There are literally countless options on how to implement a system for streaming, but we will focus on the basics of what you need to know to begin. This will be a very practical (non-super-technical!) look at how easy it can be to start streaming your services and events online.
