Working on Easter

Most Pastors see Easter as a very important day, both because of the Spiritual significance and the fact that we’ll have a lot of people watching. It’s a busy day for ministers. The truth is that I work on Easter Sunday, taking care of details, music things and guarding against disaster since, as I mentioned, people are watching. I wonder if worship team volunteers feel the same way, where they look at Easter Sunday as a day to be ready for instead of what I wish it were — a day of extreme worship and thanksgiving. For me, it’s a big week — but I’m afraid the reason isn’t what it should be. What am I modeling here?

How do we go about making Easter Sunday a day of Worship for worship teams and leaders? I think it has a lot to do with the rehearsal, and even more to do with the heart going into things. I like to say to our teams before we begin a set that we’ve rehearsed, we’ve prayed, we’ve worked. Now we let the Holy Spirit guide, working in us, through us, and even in spite of us.

As I’m mentally working through our services, I’m thinking that my job is to pray through, think, discuss, plan and then let go. I wonder if the Holy Spirit is desperatley trying to pry the service order out of our hands?
