The other day I was hanging (digitally) with Aaron Keyes and some friends talking worship leading over at MinistryHangout.com
Aaron said something, which he seems to do often, that literally shifted everything I think about Sunday worship and what a church is trying to accomplish.
We were discussing players who play at different churches weekly and are not really plugged into the local body.
Then it got into hiring the most beautiful, rock star looking, great singing people to impress those who attend your church.
Aaron said this…

“You gotta figure out what you want. If you want to be the best show in town, then hire the best players. But if you want to be a family thats growing in God together, then be a family that’s growing in God together. If my kids put on a little play for Meghan and I, it’s not going be the most GLAMOROUS thing, but it might be glorious to us. And it’s dangerous to confuse glamorous with glorious. You gotta figure out what you want. If you want a glamorous show, with lights and sounds, then get the people that look the part, but if you want to encounter the glory of God you HAVE to find people who will live for that…”
