yes i did that…

Way back when I used to want to be the next Chris Tomlin (because we don’t have enough worship leaders), I remember starting a “worship band” (because we don’t have enough worship bands).

I actually got us all together for I think one jam-slash-practice…  Looking back, they were actually pretty stinking solid musically.  A patient, and accurate drummer, a skilled bassist (who could play upright, etc.), and a fantastic female vocalist… and I was ‘humble’ enough that I even planned to let her sing lead on a few songs.

If this is not embarrassing enough, I remember quite distinctly proposing a name for this worship band (or was it more informing them!?).  I think I’d even printed out a ‘logo’ on plain white 8 1/2 x 11 (which is NOT exactly the same size as A4, for all you kiwi readers), using —ouch the embarrassment!!!— Papyrus font on Microsoft word.

I don’t remember if it was as two, one or two hyphenated words, but I obviously felt that it would help to explain the ‘inspiration’ behind the name: “Servant-saints” (!!!)  “You know, cuz we’re called to be servants, and we’re also seen by God as saints.”

(face –>palm)

  1. I took up probably 7 minutes of a sermon one time talking about the evils of Papyrus and Comic Sans.

  2. But you’re not alone – I remember being in a Christian band called Rain On Sunday… and we covered Audio Adrenaline’s “Never Gonna Be As Big As Jesus” in our one and only gig.
