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.

Should Songwriters Count Syllables Or Just Listen For Accents? by Bobby Gilles

This new release, Rushing Waters, by Dustin Smith is a very moving song. It’s the kind of “vertical song” I think serves the church well. Very big picture but also engendering a very congregational expression. You can get the chord chart here.

Kingsway Free Song of the Week: Saviour’s Song by Case Crayenord, Tim Hughes and Martin Smith

Don’t miss the gift that Kingsway graciously offers every week. Go to their site and register. Each week you get a link to a free mp3 file and chord chart of a great song.  Here’s a link directly to this week’s song. Lyrics are below along with a music video.

This is Jesus

Light of life, eternal
In flesh and bones, descending
You walked upon the earth
The Creator
Humbled by creation
You kissed a world in mercy
Embraced us at the cross

Sing aloud the Saviour’s song
Come worship Him, come worship Him
Raise Your hands and shout His name
Christ Jesus, Christ Jesus

It is finished
A rugged cross stands empty
Death has been defeated
This world is not the same
Songs are rising
Awe and adoration
Fill our hearts with wonder
Endless praise is Yours

For nothing is higher
No one is greater
Nothing compares to You
