I greatly appreciate the musicians of Brainerd Baptist Church.  The hours they spend, especially in the orchestra, to accompany our worship, are well spent.  Today we sang this song from Casting Crowns:

Just to know You and
To make You known
We lift Your name on High
Shine like the sun make darkness run and hide
We know we were made for so much more
Than ordinary lives
It's time for us to more than just survive
We were made to thrive

This is a good anthem, as long as we remember that we were made to thrive for God's glory, not our own self-fulfillment.

One thing deeply missing in worship is corporate prayer.  Prayer is not for the ADD-afflicted, so it gets short shrift in modern worship.
