Dramatic Harmony

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Dramatic Harmony "What's my job this morning? What's my purpose Lord? Why am I here?" I've asked God these questions countless times. Without fail, He comes back with this answer over and over again. Ephesians 4:10-13 - The Message "He handed out gifts above and below, filled heaven with His gifts, filled earth with His gifts. He handed out gifts of apostle, prophet, evangelist and pastor teacher to train Christians in skilled servant work, working within Christ's body, the church, until we're all moving rythmically and easily with each other, efficient and graceful in response to God's Son, fully mature adults, fully developed within and without, fully alive like Christ." I love this scripture. ...read more.

No. But it does tell us to find a way to plug in and use our gifts and talents, once a month, once a week, paid staff or volunteer. For how long?

He desires that the music ministry works in harmony with the drama ministry. His vision is for the technical arts ministry to gracefully and efficiently with the teaching pastor. It's a perfect model created by a perfect God... handed down to very imperfect children. Are you fired up for the challenge? What about the drama team? ...read more.

Conclusion

We do all of this servant work knowing that in the end, a well executed sketch becomes a small part of the worship service as a whole. It's not our job to be in the spotlight, we are called to be the spotlight shining on Him. If we do our job well, the whole service is a seamless backdrop for God's voice and the Holy Spirit to speak and move. The music works in harmony with the teaching, the technical arts, the videos, lights, ushers, slides, prayer ministry and the drama. God's plan, God's design, God's purpose. Our privelage. What's the end result? To become "...fully mature adults, fully developed within and without, fully alive like Christ." ! Amen!! Looking forward to serving with you in a life filled ministry! -Misti Simpson ...read more.
