I get the amazing opportunity to serve on a Creative Arts team at our church. Since we're still searching for a new Worship Leader, I help lead once a month. Our vocal team has such a blast together....Susan brings snacks, Jim gives high-fives, Kelli does great harmonies, Brian holds us all together with his James Taylor-ish smoothness, and Becky makes us look good.....We laugh during practice and during the sermon....we love it when it's loud and everything sounds good...we encourage each other when the harmonies click....despite the hard work and exhausting 2-day schedule, it's about the most fun I have in a month. If I can't sing back-up with Caedmon's Call, this is a pretty good consolation prize! After the 3rd worship service we did this weekend, Jim summed it up when he asked, "Do you think God's face ever hurts from smiling so much??"

That is pretty darned fun. There is nothing like gathering with people who are of one heart and one mind and worshipping together. Love the picture of God smiling!

Gretchen,

Great post! I completely agree with what you said. I always have fun with you guys on the worship team, and it is exhausting, but well worth it to serve God and laugh and enjoy it with one another. I love what Jim said, too. I will truly miss being on your team on the 3rd weekend. It has been an honor, privilege, and absolute blast to be a part of it with you all.
