This past Sunday we had this gentleman lead worship along with Roanoke Praise. Go ahead, check out his page. I’ll wait.
The video clip on their site for “Jesus Can” does not even begin to do it justice. Our congregation tends to be mild mannered. Occassionally we’ll hear an ‘Amen’ or see one hand quietly slip up during a moving worship song but in general we’re a quiet flock. Not his past Sunday! Oooooh boy. It was so much fun to see our church wake up and celebrate God in a big way.
I think that all churches should have African American choirs. (I don’t mean to be stereotypical.) Their joy and excitement is contageous. You see their emotion, feel their love and catch their beat when they lead worship. I love it!
