Happy New Year worship180 readers and subscribers! I will start out by saying a big thank you for continuing to read and follow what we are doing here. Each year it is my goal and desire to keep writing fresh things to give insight into worship and continue writing things that you want to read. My biggest goal for this year is to get back to writing consistently. I read an article from another writer who said that they only way to get better and widen your audience is to keep writing. That seems to be the case, as far as the little stat line goes. When I write, people read. When I don’t, well…duh. Oh well, that is my goal to keep sharing. My hope for this year is to be a little more interactive. I don’t know if I’ve ever really asked the question to any of you about what you’d like me to write about. Is there anything you’d like to hear my thoughts on that I haven’t shared already? Are there any worship topics that you’d like to discuss? I’d love to hear from you guys and I’d love to do what I can to foster healthy discussion.
Before I wrap up this first post of the year, I have some last year business to finish. I forgot to post my “Favorite Music of 2012″. So I have to do it today. These are in no particular order, but here are my favorites from the year.
Black Radio- Robert Glasper
A Creation Liturgy- Gungor
Tuskegee- Lionel Richie
Live Worship-Vertical Church Band
The Same Love- Paul Baloche
Radio Music Society- Esperanza Spaulding
PTX Volume 1-Pentatonix
Inspired-Groove For Thought
Back to Love-Anthony Hamilton (disclaimer: This one came out in December 2011 and I didn’t add it to last year, but it was awesome!)
There you have it. 10 of my favorite albums from 2012 (and one from LATE 2011). Let’s see what God has to say for this upcoming year.
