Why do we sing in worship services? Why not simply use spoken words? For one thing, songs give us language to describe our experiences. We cling to them like life preservers when our faith is challenged.
Did you catch worship during Synod 2016? It was a Spirit-led time! And good news, the outlines for these morning worship services are now available to use in your own worship planning.
Perhaps one of the biggest objectives for a worship planner is to drive home the pastor’s message. How can these two parties work together to create a cohesive and meaningful experience?
Last year I was struck by Jesus' words at the triumphal entry that if his disciples kept quiet, the stones would cry out. Moved by this, I created a song/call to worship that I'd like to share with the community.
