I am often asked where I go to church; with the person inquiring expecting me to say "Mega Media Church" or "Light of the World and Stage Church" or...something like that.
Nope. My wife and I attend a church plant in north Texas, where a couple hundred people share a building with a Korean church, sit in pews, have no lighting, and where their media consists of white text on a black background.
What a refresher. Why?
My wife and I go there to worship together, through song/scripture/communion/hearing the word. While my wife and I also worship together when RUNNING media/lighting together for events/other churches, this church community is different, and we need it.
We both come from church backgrounds (heavily involved in churches growing up) so to always be "serving" or "working" in a church isn't necessarily a healthy thing. I'm in 2-3 churches a week helping them with projection and lighting, so coming home and NOT having to think about that on a Sunday is quite nice at times.
Sometimes we need our space and a refresher, where we can simply worship without having to push a button on a computer or light console.
