A few weeks ago, a mom in our church emailed me asking for the list of songs planned for the next Sunday meeting. She wanted to try to teach them to her children in advance so they could be ready to sing. Needless to say, my thought process went something like this, “Wow. My wife and I are fortunate just to get our kids to the Sunday service in one piece with clean clothes on. I’ve never dreamed of teaching them hymns of the faith in advance. And I’m the song leader!” Granted, her kids are a little older than mine, but I’m grateful for her example of deliberate parenting.

It’s also not unusual for folks to tell me after a Sunday service, “Where did that new song come from? I loved it and want to find a recording.”

In the spirit of serving both groups, I’m going to start posting a Sunday review each week recapping order of service highlights from the previous weekend. Enjoy!
