PostSubject: Worship with flags   Fri Mar 17, 2017 8:49 am

If you're friends with me on facebook, you might have seen me share several videos of people performing worship with flags. For about 3 months, this has been a brand new passion in my heart. I do this regularly on Sunday mornings, and during other church sets.

Thought I would share this with you guys. I don't have the talent or skill (yet) to pull off what this guy is doing, but this video is so inspirational for me.

It's like a choreographed dance

Some are choreographed, and some are spontaneous. I'm more of the latter.

Our church encourages worshiping "freely", meaning if you feel led to get on your knees, lay on your face, raise your hands, or move around with flags, then do it. There is an area in the rear of our sanctuary where several of us (including myself) do just that. No greater feeling than worship in the presence of our King, inside church or otherwise.

I have decided that I want to start saving money for my own set of flags to use. There is a set at church with several ribbons and streamers as well that a few of us use, but I want a set that I can take with me to worship by myself with no one else around. Whether it's an empty parking lot, a beach, a baseball field, whatever.

Here's another one I just found tonight, that really ministered to me. BTW if you like praise and worship music that ain't exactly metal, give these guys (Elevation Worship) a listen. I have both of their live albums, and they have become a major staple in my library.

To be honest, I don't quite understand the meaning of flag use or even interpretive dance at church.  I AM NOT saying it is wrong or doesn't have a place.  I just don't get it.  Perhaps it has a meaning, but I've never seen it done and thought that it made my experience at a church better.  I find it distracting personally.

However, with that said, if you find joy in it,  find it heightens your worship experience, and find that your church is open to it, then by all means do it.

At least your church is willing to use a song written after the 1800s unlike mine.

I don't get flags or dance either, but that doesn't mean one can't use those things in worship.

I think it is just like any other art in church, which means as long as it doesn't become the focus (meaning distracts from the killer guitar solos), I've got no problem with it at all.

Whether it becomes the focus or not doesn't matter to me. During worship, I don't look around to see who may or may not be watching me. When I'm worshiping, I'm in my 'zone'. Obviously, I do keep an awareness of my surroundings, because people come and go through the foyer, but I try to imagine myself in the throne room when I flag.

I understand that it's not everybody's bag of worship, and that's cool. I never thought it would be something that I would pick up and do.

Oh, and if I ever find a good worship song with killer guitar solos that I can flag to, you guy will be the first to know. That would be an awesome experience. Very Happy

Try some of Lincoln Brewster's albums.  Several of them have some rippin' solos.

His new stuff is just mild CCM typical fare.  I guess his record company is more concerned with making him sound like everyone else.  Lincoln used to have his own sound.  He wasn't hard rock, but he did like to bust off on some solos.
