In closing, here is a quote from Paul Baloche found at his Lead Worship website:
“We need each other. We need to worship. The essence of life is a relationship with God and a relationship with others. I think writing songs and trying to be creative with God’s word, to sing out your prayers spontaneously is a great spiritual exercise. And if a good song comes out of it, that’s a bonus.”
