An Article written by Dan Cogan, called My Journey away from contemporary worship music. Please look at it, for it lays the foundation to my letter. Presently, since my separation and divorce, I left my church. Firstly embarrassed to go alone, then deciding they were concentrating to much on the youth. I can relate to the article, very much. I've volunteered as a missionary, nursing home minister, gone to the jails, ministered on the streets to the homeless, and fed many people. I didn't know the words, of many of the hymns, when I first started leading worship, every week. I relearned them, with many of the saints. Rich in verses, and dedication, I began to see and understand what went on before our generation. One generation cannot forget what previous generations have gone through for us. It's just like the military, all the people who have served, is the great cloud of witnesses, that have gone on before us, they are the ones that watch us and celebrate, when one of us realizes our need of a savior. Is our focus on that savior? or on us, when singing our heart out? This will determine the change in out heart and out outward appearance, for others to see. Saved from what? begins to take on a new meaning when we look to the Savior. Saved from ourselves, our sin nature, and restored to a Father. Drawn by Him, paid for by the blood of the Lamb, His Son.
