Just now listening to this album for the first time - along with all other Coldplay. What have I been missing? There are some gems here.

I come from a background where there were a lot of fast and upbeat tempos, so at the end of every service, or right when worship would begin, I would actually leave. I would take Communion and leave and told myself it was okay if I listened to my own worship music and praise music when I got home.

If I was going to be a part of the church, if I was going to come here and listen to the message and be a part of this body, I needed to be a part of this body and actually be in the service. Not just for when Matt preaches or whoever is preaching at that time, but be in a Home Group, participate in worship, and worship with the church. By the end of that transition, I felt myself falling in love with this new way of worship that I’d never even considered.

It’s not about you. It’s not about what you like or what you don’t like. It’s definitely something the Holy Spirit had to remind me of. It’s about God getting the glory, and it really doesn’t matter what avenue he chooses to do that in.

"I believe that God’s heart is broken because far too often,
those in the church who have received artistic gifts from Him are unwilling to boldly proclaim the truth outside the church."

Last Norma Jean post, I promise… but this is the best one.  This is the video from the official Cornerstone film crew.  It was really cool that the Festival officials sent them over to our stage, along with the security crew from the Main Stage.  There are some really great shots from this video, and you can get a good feel for our stage and how it went.   We were really able to connect with a lot of people this way, and God used it in the ways He always does. 

This was crazy to see live.
