I am right now listening to a great album. It's David Crowder Band's newest, just released a few weeks ago. You know I don't listen to much "Christian" music, but this one is worth it. The movement of this album and the diversity is fantastic! The band moves from big sounding worship songs with walls of electric guitars and digital drum beats mixed with acoustic drums to pure old fashion blue grass! That's right blue grass! Crowder never ceases to amaze! I really like the blended songs using traditional country instruments and electronica beats and programming.
The album's name and the song called A Collision got me thinking about worship. The concept of the album is really a pretty deep theological thought on what worship really is. The reality of our sinfulness and our inability to meet with God on our own is so obvious to me as a worship leader. But God creates a "collision" through the incarnation. A beautiful collision of deity and humanity. In worship we meet with the transcendent God and we place ourselves at His feet. This album helps me to do that and it helps me to remember why a missional church like the Open Door keeps meeting for corporate worship.
