Christmas Isn't Over

Isn’t it strange that while society is so eager to begin celebrating Christmas, it is equally quick to drop it like a hot potato?

Recycled Hymns

Kevin Twit wrote that the hymns our grandparents sang and loved, are now finding a place in the set list of today's worship leaders and in the hearts of younger Christians. Like anything that makes a comeback they are not reappearing in exactly the same form.

The Long Prayer

Is it time to give up on the long prayer and accept that it only works in a small number of churches who hold on to traditional forms of worship?  Or is it time to revive this practice? What do you think?

Living as Easter People

Our task as worship leaders and planners is to be used by the Holy Spirit to help our congregants live as Easter people in a world of wars, disease, flooding, abuse, sickness, depression, and yes, hope.   It’s been said “we are an Easter people living in a Good Friday world.”

The Unsung Jesus

Singing of a Christ who challenges us to love our enemies including those of different faiths or ethnic backgrounds, to forgive the worst of sinners and then enfold them into our community, to take care of the orphan even those with HIV/AIDs, to be willing to give up some of the comforts in life in order to bring comfort to those who need it most; to sing of such a Christ puts us outside our comfort zone.

Give It Up!

I am all for spiritual practices and discipline. I’m just not sure that the act of giving up chocolate or TV for Lent can draw us closer to God in and of itself. Laurence Hull Stookey puts it best when he writes: “Lenten disciplines are not temporary deletions or additions, but spiritual exercises that permanently alter us” ...

What's Normal

What we consider as normal has everything to do with our context. In conversations about worship I am increasingly trying to excise any statement that suggests a norm such as, “this song is familiar” or “everyone is doing x, y or z.” For every normative statement we try to make there will be examples where it is false...

Who May Lead Worship?

Can anyone be a part of a worship team or must they be a professing member in good standing?  What about new Christians who are still trying to figure out what it means to live as a Christian?  Do we expect a certain amount of spiritual maturity to be exemplified by our worship leaders?

Top Worship Songs of 2010

The beginning of a new year is always a good time to reflect and take inventory of the past 12 months.  No doubt you may have noticed top 10 lists popping up all over.  I was curious myself as to what the top 10 worship songs were for 2010 and so I did some web research but ran into some roadblocks.
