For Worship 2, we created an online database where composers were able to upload their own songs along with all the details including each song's history. This gives us some idea of how well our community knows each song so that our choices are as relevant as possible. The online database also allowed composers to choose their own theme and offer suitable biblical quotes for their songs. In Worship 2, we are hoping to section the book into themes to increase the discovery of, and engagement with, each song.
At this very point in time, we've received 264 song entries. It's an amazing response that has come from composers worldwide. We will close the submissions page at 12am Pacific Standard Time and then begin the planning for step two.... sifting through and analysing the songs. We won't know what type of book we will have until we see all the songs, so we have an exciting adventure ahead of us. Please pray for this project, for its success as a blessing to our community, for all of those composers who have shared something personal about their relationship with their Father, and that it will be accepted by our Father as an offering of praise.
