The Animate experience was a clear reflection of the new realities of how people collaborate and communicate globally. Our online exchanges ended up going offline by us hopping on a plane to be in Dallas in a few hours. Our hosts, Allen and Laura Gower, connected to us via Facebook and had stopped in Amsterdam for lunch past summer on their way to a conference in St.Petersburg. And my wife was in Vienna for the weekend with the wife of the guy who was with us as a visitor.
They gathered in Guadalajara from the U.K. the U.S., and throughout Mexico—Tijuana, Mexico City, Monterrey, Oaxaca, Puebla, Cuernavaca, Querétaro, Saltillo, Tlaxcala, and Leon. Around 200 worship leaders—instrumentalists, singers, technicians, choir directors and others—gathered in Guadalajara, Mexico for "REVERENT," an international worship conference designed to stimulate more focused, engaged, energetic and thoughtful worship throughout our churches.

praise him in his mighty heaven!
Praise him for his mighty works;
praise his unequaled greatness!
Praise him with a blast of the ram's horn;
praise him with the lyre and harp!
Praise him with the tambourine and dancing;
praise him with strings and flutes!
Praise him with a clash of cymbals;
praise him with loud clanging cymbals.
Let everything that breathes sing praises to the Lord!" – Psalm 150:1-6
