We’ve done it. We’ve officially turned LEGO into a real-life product. Not a viable one and certainly not cost-efficient, but it worked. This is the perfect advertisement for LEGO Technic, but it is also targeted for kids, when in fact it is the parents that will probably buy it.

Being a worship leader wasn’t something I chose to be, it was quite literally thrust upon me when I was in high school when our youth worship leader needed to step down for a season to focus on some familial responsibilities. I had grown up in a musical family and had formal training in vocal performance but had only been playing the guitar for a couple of years and had no real experience in what it meant to lead a band, let alone select songs that worked well together and organize a practice.
