Worship is about pleasing God – yet we also use our weekly gatherings to instruct the flock and win unbelievers to Christ. Balancing these priorities is a difficult task. The clergy and musicians who shoulder this burden deserve our encouragement – not our condemnation.

Unfortunately worship has become less about worshiping God and more about worshiping the way we worship

How true, not like the old days of true worshiping from within your Spirit!

We need to entertain God in worship and not other things

what are your thoughts on soloists, ..aka… specials?? Carl, Wayne, James… anyone else??

I don’t think God is concerned about lights, microphones, instruments, style of music or whether we sing choruses or hymns (and I usually favour including both). Is an 1885 model for worship more sacred than a 2016 model? I don’t think so. The problem isn’t our model of worship. The problem is us

All worship should be in the spirit of God

Tim what do we need to do? How do we ‘fix us’? Help those who may be reading…and not know HOW to start? or ‘right the ship’?

We all have personal preferences in our music tastes and how we like to see our worship services run. When it comes to worship music in the church, we have to grow beyond “this is what I like” to a place where we realize that worship isn’t about me or my preferences.
