Sometimes things happen in church for which you know that keeping your mouth shut is the right thing to do. After all, one wouldn't want to point the finger of blame or mockery. But oh, how you want to share it with your friend in the pew just a few rows away. 

ELTON2We've all been in a church when the piano player suddenly kicks up a gear and goes all 'Elton John' on you - you know, a little rocky, a little flamboyant. Now you can chuckle and share the moment with our new 'Oops, Elton's turned up' Emoji.

 

HIPSTER2I don't know about you, but some of these young male worship leaders can grow beards super-quick. But these Hipster-Cool worship leaders need to be celebrated. Well now you can share your love of Hipster-Hymnody with our new 'Hairy Hipster Emoji'. Not just a great beard but arms outstretched in worship, this Emoji should find a home at the emerging worship events far and wide.

TIMEOUTPREACHERBut sometimes, things aren't so good. You're pretty certain that the preacher has muttered a theologically questionable sentence. You don't have time to check it with your local Bible College, but you know someone who might be able to help. That's why we created our 'Whistle-Blower' Emoji - to blow the whistle on poor theology and to give you a piccie to express your concern.

WORSHIPLEADERLOVEBut we're not finished yet. Oh no. Because there's one Emoji that should only be used sparingly. It's our 'I think I've fallen in love with the Worship Leader'. It's not big and it's not clever people, but it's better just to get it 'out there' than keep it hidden away. If you use this one, you really need to go for prayer.....

 

 

 

BOLDLYGOINGWHERENOMAN INWORSHIP3

'You can only lead people where you've been yourself.' - ever heard that in a worship leading seminar? Well, now you can run the risk of boldy going where no worship leader has gone before - with this 'I Boldy Went Somewhere I've Never Been Before' Emoji. Useful for both worship leader and congregant alike, these Spock ears put you in the driving seat of modernity and innovation.

 

 

 

ONFIRE2Is there a fire down in your soul that you can't contain and you can't control? Use our 'I Think I'm On Fire' Emoji - to share your Spiritual heat with others. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SMUGSometimes though, things really are going 'fine'. We're good. We're content. But it's still worth expressing eh?! Here's our 'I might look smug but actually life's going great' Emoji.

 

 

 

 

 

THIRSTYDURINGWORSHIPYes, sometimes worship does go 'on and on and on and on it goes'....in a good way of course. But what to do if you're stuck in the middle of a pew with no means of satisfying your thirsty soul? Now you can send our 'Help Me I'm Gasping For Water' Emoji to a friend who might be able to get you some light refreshment to enable you to continue in your praises.

 

We think of everything.

 

APRIL FOOL!

You're welcome.

So just what does the latest album from Elbow have to teach worship leaders? Plenty.  Anyone who knows me is well aware of my obsession with the Manchester band Elbow, and my friends have all been properly proselytized by now. Stalking...

7 Tips for Leading Worship at Funerals

Insurance companies like to drop a little fear into the equation by getting us to think about what we might do 'IF the worst should happen.' The truth is less cagey. The truth is that when it comes to death, it's a matter of WHEN not IF. And that applies to worship leaders just as much as it does to midwives and members of the emergency services. Sooner or later, someone's going to ask you to lead worship at a funeral. And when they do, it's important that you're not left looking like a rabbit in the headlights.

It’s All in the Way You Word It

I’ve read the story of Esther many times. But this time, something different stood out to me; the way it was worded. In the beginning of the story, there was a queen before Esther, named Queen Vashti. Queen Vashti didn’t want to attend the king’s party. She simply said, “NO.” Because of her simple refusal, she was banned from the king’s presence.
