Connecting Through Song


"I remember the first time I experienced contemporary worship—people singing songs to Jesus in an intimate way. I was in college as a freshman, and had met this guy who was saying, “I’m starting a group for theater people who want to talk about God.”

And I thought, ehh, I’ll show up.

This group of people were in a small room in the basement of the arts dorm, and somebody pulls out a guitar and starts playing these simple love songs, "Jesus, your name is like honey on my lips."

And I was struck by how weird it was… These folks are singing these love songs to God..."

So it can take a while to get into worship. But some people really get into worship—like King David, dancing in the streets. Check out Leah’s notes or listen in for more about connecting with each other and with God through song:
