How A Rock Concert Changed The Way I Worship

I used to be such a stiff when it came to worship. Lifting my hands felt so awkward. I found it so hard to let go of wondering what people might be thinking of me. Then one March evening in 2009, everything changed. I was at a concert for one of my favorite bands, an indie group from Kansas City […]
