66- Maximising Lockdown

Maximising lockdown is something we all need to do in this current pandemic.

OK, we all have it and we all have to deal with the isolation and restrictions, but today’s pod is about how you can maximise lockdown.  Not just endure it, but use this time to reset and make life changes, and worship leading changes, that will last forever.

As worship leaders, and as any pastor in the church will tell you, this current crisis has been challenging to say the least.

We have had to modify, and indeed continue to modify the way we do church.  It is difficult, and we have found ourselves staring down the barrel of a monitor, phone or tablet trying to be pastors.

And worship leaders too have had a difficult time trying to maximise lockdown.  Our band is scattered across the region, and our congregation is sitting at home in their PJs having breakfast instead of being in the church building.  Many argue it opens up a whole new audience, and this may be true, but I would be lying if I said as a pastor I’m loving zoom and Facebook more than real life!

It is difficult, it is downright weird, and for worship leaders and their teams, it can be soul-sapping and very disappointing.

Maximising Lockdown Maximises the Situation

Look, I know that the current situation is not ideal.  But we as worship leaders and church leaders can choose to see the glass half empty or half full.  Listen to this podcast so you can not only maximise lockdown as a leader in the church, but also maximise it in your own personal life, and in your time with the Lord.

In this middle of the greatest pandemic of our lifetime, listen to this and let’s make the very best use of the time and isolation afforded by the COVID pandemic.
