If you have never been to a Chris Tomlin worship concert go here and make some serious plans to get there. You will not regret it.
I think one of the best things about Chris’ music is the focus of his songs. Recently I read an article on worship titled “The Show is Over” in Charisma Magazine all about the state of worship music in some of our churches in the States. Stertzer interviewed folks from all over and makes some provocotive points. Quoting the article she makes the statement- “Then in the ’90s, a lot of songs were in first person, with a focus on self: “I need” and “Lord, what can You do for me?” In reflecting on Chris’ songs, I can’t recall his being of this ilk. As we all sang together, what came to my mind was how each song pointed to, reflected on, and illuminated something about Father, Jesus, or the Holy Spirit. We sang to and about God the entire time. This was super refreshing.
