Thoughts on the New Prayer Room
Ok so we have a whole new look now. Was it as much of a shocker to you as it was to me? I am digging the new changes, but for some reason I was surprised. Not sure why cause I knew about the whole “God TV” thing, so once I connected the dots it totally made sense to me. I know a lot of people were upset at first. Some so upset that they could have blown the head off a Malibu Barbie from 20 miles away. My first 2 initial thoughts were.. “Wow this is cooler than most clubs I have played in” and “ Holy cow it looks like the interior decorator for the 'Seeker Friendly Church’s of America' just went nuts with a Visa card!" I was truly impressed with the effort towards coolness though. I only have issue with 2 things. #1 – Chelsey Huff cannot sit in the singer 4 position behind the other singers. Why? She is not done growing yet, that’s why! You can’t have one of the coolest sounding voices ever and not be seen! Plus, she’s just way to darn cute, and when people put the face with the voice, IHOP support has to go up, I mean come on! I am starting a “Free Thumbelina Campaign”! T-Shirts are coming soon. #2 The stage/ set up on the web cast looks a tad like the Late Night Show with Conan or something. That’s not bad per se but I keep waiting for a comedian to come on in between sets. I’ll get over it. Not sure if it’s saying “prophetic worship” yet, but it rocks nonetheless. Change is good and it’s good to be a part of it. Through it, all the people remain the same. Sure, we will have to get used to it not feeling like a performance with all the glam and lights but that’s ok. It will be good to work through it and have still have tender hearts when the camera’s roll. It’s good for our identities to be challenged, whether in secret or in the great wide open. Whatever color the paint is on the outside, these people are the best; and I still want to live and die right along side of them.
