Someone asked me recently why I call this site Worship’s Wake. The answer is because Worship should be and have Wake.
Worship should be like a Wake. Not many people do this anymore, but a traditional wake, family night, or viewing is a gathering of loved ones around the deceased before the funeral. They tell stories, They cry. They hug and support the family. They are reminded that this life has impact, this life makes a difference, this life lives on in resurrection. Worship should have all of these characteristics… and more.
Worship should be aWake. We all giggle when it happens. That elderly gentleman in the back nods off and we begin the hear the rumble of his snore two minutes into the sermon. Worship needs to have an energy. This doesn’t mean that we’re all moshing for Jesus or jumping in the house of God every Sunday. But within the given context, the worship experience should cause a change within us from the potential to the kinetic, from the everyday to the supernatural, from the mundane to the spiritual.
Worship should have a Wake. When a boat goes through the water, it causes a ripple behind it called a wake. When other boats hit this wake, it causes them difficulty and changes their course. God knows where our boat is heading, and God willing, the Lord is the captain with the vision. Our worship experience needs cut through the waters of this live and other boats should be affected by it.
Worship’s Wake is my site for helping this happen. Community Worship, Energetic Worship, Visionary and Transformational Worship. Knowing God is in the mix, I’ll do my best.
