Community=What We Should Be.

Posted: July 28, 2010 in Uncategorized

So last night during worship practice, I kept glancing down at the monitor to the right of me. It had the word “Community” written on it. Now granted it’s the brand name, but I got to thinking of what that word means and how we as musicians serving Christ should strive to be exactly that. A community.

The definition of community, for those of you who don’t know is-

1 : a unified body of individuals: as a : state, commonwealth b : the people with common interests living in a particular area; broadly : the area itself <the problems of a large community> c : an interacting population of various kinds of individuals (as species) in a common location d : a group of people with a common characteristic or interest living together within a larger society <a community of retired persons> e : a group linked by a common policy f : a body of persons or nations having a common history or common social, economic, and political interests <the international community> g : a body of persons of common and especially professional interests scattered through a larger society (the academic community)

Community is important to achieving goals, especially spiritual ones. At least I think so. Not one single person is responsible for God showing up during a worship service and Him touching lives. It says in the bible somewhere that when two or more are present and giving praise to God, is when He shows up. Our common interest is music and serving God. We love God and He gave us the talent of musical giftings for a reason. When we come together, unite as one and play selflessly for Him, we create a community of musicians.

That has really been on my heart all last night and all day today. Yes, we may have differences and disagreements, but when we fix those problems, don’t put ourselves before God in playing and love on each other, we can reach “a whole notha level”.
