Weekend Links

Weekend Links

Worship leaders, pastors, and everyone serving this weekend: know that I’m praying for you! I pray that God will bless you and stretch you and use you to grow His kingdom and expand His family.

As usual, I found lots of great links this week that I wanted to share with you but that didn’t quite fit into a post. When you get a few minutes this weekend, check them out and be encouraged and challenged. Maybe even learn something. 🙂

Remember, these are just excerpts, but I strongly encourage you to click through and read each post in its entirety.

Tom Buck explains why sometimes you just need to do a funeral for a dog (this is a great story):

After 22 years of serving as a pastor, I did something I never could have imagined. But there I was: standing in our church’s worship center, filled with civilians and law enforcement officers, prepared to preach a sermon at a memorial service—for a dog. Those who know me—a conservative Southern Baptist pastor—were probably more shocked than I was.

How on earth had I found myself in this situation?

Mark MacDonald wrote an interesting post about church logo design:

“Put a cross in it please”, said the pastor who recently asked for our studio to design a new logo for his church. I believe he’s wrong, so I challenged the notion. He said he wasn’t sure but the committee he reports to requested it.

Great logos are rarely designed by a committee.

I may be late to the game here, but this Facebook group is hilarious:

WE exist to create memes, for Worship Leaders, by Worship Leaders.

Here’s another funny Facebook group for worship folks:

Providing comical worship team dilemma memes.

I’ll assume that you haven’t all heard about this worship-related tragedy yet:

Describing the experience as “tragic,” local worship leader Axl Johnson found his congregation totally unable to worship as the church’s primary fog machine malfunctioned right in the middle of the Sunday morning set. “We barely got through our new song. It was a real train-wreck,” a visibly shaken Johnson told us while sipping a latte macchiato in the church cafe after service.
