Averting Worship Wars

December 23, 2009

There are many fights in churches these days over what kind of music to use, but I am convinced most of those fights could be avoided if we faithfully reflected upon the questions given to us by [Colossians 3.12-17].  Instead of asking what kind of music will appeal to the world around us, we must ask:

  • What will enable us most deeply to dwell in God’s Word?
  • What will best express the Word?
  • How will the Word’s beauty and mystery, its infinity and generosity be best conveyed?
