Corporate Worship

Last weekend I saw Chris Tomlin on his Hello Love tour. It was AMAZING!! I also had the opportunity to meet him and he was very kind to me.

Something, I've been wondering about is corporate worship. Most of the Christian concerts that I go to are amazing. There have been some, where I don't really connect, but most of them are spectacular. I go to a different place. I'm not sure I can even describe it, my worship becomes transcendent.

I wonder why I get that feeling at concerts, and not at church, bible study or quest. What's the difference? Why do I have to be at a concert to experience that? I wanna experience it all the time!!!

A Prayer for Lent

How often have I lived through these weeks without paying much attention to penance, fasting, and prayer? How often have I missed the spiritual fruits of the season without even being aware of it? But how can I ever really celebrate Easter without observing Lent? How can I rejoice fully in your Resurrection when I have avoided participating in your death?
Yes, Lord, I have to die—with you, through you, and in you—and thus become ready to recognize you when you appear to me in your Resurrection. There is so much in me that needs to die: false attachments, greed and anger, impatience and stinginess.... I see clearly now how little I have died with you, really gone your way and been faithful to it. O Lord, make this Lenten season different from the other ones. Let me find you again. Amen.
