Rethinking the Worship Wars By Justin Deeter
“When it comes to worship styles we must think like a missionary.  No one method is superior to another, but one method might better advance the Gospel of Jesus in your community.” 

Weighing in On the Worship Wars by Matt Marino
“It doesn’t have to be a choice between a great band singing unsingable songs or being trapped with an organ and an archaic hymnal. Worship could be a recovery of the ancient pattern of Christian worship, artfully and powerfully done, with music that is culturally appropriate to the context you are in.”

 The Role of Singing in the Life of the Church by 
 
“In short, the God who has held back nothing from us, not even his only Son, deserves far more than the dregs of our attention and the leftovers of our affections.” 

Worship Leaders & Leading

The Worship Leader and Character from Biblical Worship, the blog of Music and Worship Leadership at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky.
“Robert Murray M’Cheyne: ‘It is not great talents God blesses so much as likeness to Jesus.  A holy minister is an awful weapon in the hand of God.’  Worship leaders need to seek to be conformed to the image of Christ daily.”

New Songs

Cardophonia recently posted their top ten opening songs. The four hymns are below, check out the retunes and modern songs here.

Hymns:

1. Praise to the Lord (Redemption Hill Arr.)
We love this 4/4 driving arrangement from Redemption Hill, Richmond. We don’t always use the extra bits but the overall feel is great.

2. All Creatures of Our God and King (Traditional)
A great call to worship to song reflecting the call of the psalm 117.

3. Be Thou My King (Rend Collective Arr.)
Like ‘Praise to the Lord’ above taking Be Thou Vision and giving it a driving 4/4 rhythm makes it a great opening song calling us to return our ‘vision’ to the Lord.  We keep the old words but the Rent Collective arr. inspired us.

4. O Worship the King (trad)
A clear call to worship that establishes our relationship in song.  God as our King and his people as feeble and frail needing his mercy and strength. Helps to give the song more of a rolling 6/8 feel.
