WOW!! What a phenomenal weekend!
As I mentioned in the last post, we had our annual "Worship Concert" this past weekend, and the team was rockin'! We're all worn out, but God really moved and the place was electric. BIG props out to all the teams that helped pull off this event - music teams, tech team, visual arts team - you guys are top notch!
I mentioned that I would post the top 10 from the weekend, so here ya go!
We currently have 5 weekend experiences - 4 we'll call "contemporary" and then 1 "traditional" (southern gospel, etc.). Both lists are represented above. Our programming team noted that about 70% of the songs made the list for the first time. That's certainly a testament to the quality of music that was written this past year. I also noticed that a majority of the contemporary tunes were slower. It seems that more people are enjoying songs that pull at their hearts; an introspective look rather than a motivational type of song that we may have seen in the past. This also seems consistent with what we are seeing in society in terms of an increased interest in spirituality.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on the top 1o selections. Feel free to comment or email me.
