This past week I had attended the Platform Conference sponsored by Michael Hyatt and Ken Davis. The goal of the conference was to help provide bloggers, musicians, speakers, writers, etc, as to how to use the tools of social media to help create greater visibility for what they have to offer, and to be more effective in doing so.
In my attendance there, and in my rubbing shoulders with the giants of the field, I came across a realization that I needed to make a very specific change to the Prayer Meeting Podcast format.
After a week or so of wrangling out all of the positives of the conference (and there were many… whoo boy, were there many), I decided to go about this in this manner.
Starting with episode 37, I will no longer be having intro music, exit music, Song of the Week or Commentary on a specific issue. Just worship.
Meaning, after I introduce the episode #, I will go straight into the sign of the cross. There will be a worship set lasting between fifteen to twenty minutes, perhaps more (who knows), incorporating all the songs that I have available to use, namely, public domain hymns, public domain praise songs, public domain spiritual songs, public domain chants, and, originals.
It must be this way, due to the nature of the copyright police. The benefit is that there are a ton of great worship resources out there, songs that are rich in melody as they are deep in theology. Songs from all across the globe. Songs from nearly every denomination. Songs that will be presented in a way that I hope to be contemporary and relevant. And, as I have been doing in the last few episodes, each song you can download from the website as a PDF so you could incorporate such songs in your own circles, or just play along with me.
Furthermore, if you are a worship leader, you are welcome to do a worship set yourself.
If you are a fan of my commentary, my movie musings, my thoughts or my comedy, you are welcome to check out a new podcast, called “The Nick Alexander Podcast.” As of this writing, the first episode is on its way to being accepted by iTunes, but you can listen to it on my website.
Lastly, I am asking every one of the listeners to help me with the direction of my podcast endeavors by filling out an extremely short survey. It will be of great help to me. There is no catch. But if you do so by December 15, you will be entered into a drawing where you could win the complete Nick Alexander comedy collection– three CDs and one compilation CD with a rare new song.
