We asked worship pastors what music inspires them on their discipleship path.
“Pins and Needles”
Songwriters: Paul Meany, Dennis Herring and
“I’m growing fond of broken people, as I see that I am one of them.” We often think in terms of “us and them,” but the more we break down our self-made pedestals and realize we are just as undeserving of God’s love and grace as anyone else, the more we can connect with the world we’ve been sent into.
“All I Want is You”
Songs of Valley Christian
Songwriter: Norm Strauss
An album from my childhood, it goes through a list of the ideas of happiness (high paying jobs, money, materialism, etc.) as utterly void of any substance next to Jesus. “Nothing else really matters at all…”
Combining full-bodied, cinematic, yet deceivingly simple music with pop-y, easy-to-sing melodies, this music is just a few screams away from being sing-able worship songs. A great band to study from a song-writing perspective.
