#44 - The Worship Team As Prompters
The old theater analogy for worship is well known, that the worship team helps the congregation perform, in a sense, for the audience of one, God. In that sense, the worship both worships and help lead others. Too often, we forget that our job is to prompt the congregation in what to do and say so they can authentically worship. Here are four thoughts about being "promoters" in worship.
