Episode 36: ‘There is something hypnotic about your podcast…’

In which our heroes tackle a whole bunch of feedback on various topics, including stages of faith, the good and the bad side of beauty and mainly a lot of good stuff on how to talk to your children about your beliefs. Meanwhile, Joe explains that 14th February is really friendship day and Nick tries out hypnotic auto-suggestion on sleepy listeners, and we look forward to gold dust appearing magically in our Bibles.

    Been meaning to write to you for some time. I have been a listener right from episode 1 and I just want to say how much I look forward to, and enjoy, your Podcasts. I’m a worship leader in my local church. I don’t think you’ve approached the subject of worship, as far as I can remember. I’ve been a member of quite a few different congregations and denominations in my life and worship seems to be the most attacked ministry in the church. It’s a very upfront and vulnerable ministry and the people involved in it are, by their very nature, mostly creative, sensitive people. You are putting yourself on the line every Sunday and sometimes I think people think you’re auditioning for the X Factor and they’ve got a right to vote on your “performance”. But performance is the last thing on your mind. You just want to do your best for the Lord and help people to experience His presence in a deeper way. The other elephant in the room is just how you please everyone in a mixed age congregation. Should we try putting “Amazing Grace” to a hip hop beat or should “Revelation Song” have a 50s big band sound. And just what exactly does that phrase mean “worship is not just about music, it’s a lifestyle” usually proffered when you’ve just played and sung your heart out?
    I do hope to hear some amusing anecdotes from you that I can have a chuckle about when next I come under attack. Love and blessings and do keep up the good work.

      Hi Valerie. Thanks so much for this comment, and for the reminder of the hard work and effort that goes into sung worship Sunday by Sunday by good people like yourself. We really appreciate the feedback and thoughts and I’m sure we will reflect more on this vital aspect of church life. In the mean time keep up the good work. Best wishes. Joe
