Worship without a full band?

Check out Band in Hand! This is a way to start with what you have and go from there! It's pretty ingenious. Say you have only a guitar player. Well, this app can supply all of the other instruments! Say you get a bass player the next week.. simply remove the bass from the mix and now you are able to do guitar and bass live!

Check out the "how to" video and also visit the site for more info:

Mission Devoid of Discipleship = Failure

Every once in a while I find someone who writes or speaks the things that I'm thinking about. And to be honest I'm thinking and pondering these things and really wonder if I'm just being negative. I mean, who wants to be a glass half empty type person?

The word "missional" was something new and fresh a few years back. Many books and articles have been written about being missional both on a personal level as well as corporately. When a word is over-used, it tends to lose meaning and I find this true for the word "missional". Everyone and every church thinks they are "missional". Even their church programs are geared towards being "missional". The truth is... its just a word. Your programs are still just that...programs... sorry. Just sharing the truth in love :)

 Anyways, here is an article from Mike Breen which is entitled: Why The Missional Movement Will Fail.
