Napkin Ideas Session 4: Yancy Richmond

In session 4 of Napkin, Yancy Richmond spoke about leading children in worship. She cited one stat that by the time a person is 18 years old, he or she will have about 10,000 songs stored away in the memory. Imagine that. I have not tried to test her hypothesis, but it is suggestive of the power of music. Her point was that we are created to worship God (Ps 8:1-2). And, that if we lead kids, they will follow us in worshipping him.

She goes on to ask several questions.

  1. What does your music sound like?
  2. Who do you have on stage leading worship?
  3. Do your leaders look like they like to worship?
  4. Do you teach why and how we worship?

She also let us on on a little tidbit of information about boys….

*NEWFLASH* Boys like rock ‘n roll.

She went on to recommend the book “The Creative Habit” by Twyla Tharp.
