Eleanor Mumford on Keeping Worship Simple

July 9, 2013

This is from the Vineyard’s Inside Worship blog and it is excellent advice from a seasoned leader. I would urge you all to take the 3 minutes to watch this. Here’s just a couple of gems:

“My plea to our wonderful worship leaders is that we would keep it simple, keep it pure, keep it unsullied, keep it intimate, keep it centered on Jesus, telling him how wonderful he is…. When we waffle around the edges of the Scripture, we lose our edge and so everything to me has to be theologically sound and doctrinally satisfying.” 

“It’s easy to get caught up in the complexities and techniques of leading worship and forget for a moment what we’re doing. In this short interview Eleanor Mumford shares with us some thoughts on what makes our worship distinctive and urges us to keep it simple.”
