Tuesday night we had the pleasure again of leading worship at CharlotteONE in uptown. God is doing a great work there among this community of young professionals and college students. We count it a privilege to be able to partner with them when given the opportunity.
James-Michael Smith began a three-part series focusing on the big picture, or meta-narrative of Scripture. He clearly communicated several key points in regards to Scripture: the need for proper handling of the biblical text, how not to read your own interpretation into the text, and proper questions to ask when approaching the text–subjects I believe to be crucial and particularly relevant for this body of believers. He then looked at Genesis 1 in light of these principles. He handled near flawlessly and clearly a subject that can easily be confusing and hard-to-grasp. Amazing!
Our goal throughout the worship experience was to clearly focus on and give praise to the God of creation–the overarching theme of the night! Here was our set!
