Lately, it’s been very necessary when the music is playing and we’re supposed to be singing, you know, to God. Maybe all the “seekers” are enjoying it, but I’m finding it hard to sincerely engage in anything resembling worship.
Selena Gomez loves joining her boyfriend, The Weeknd, on his tour.
The 24-year-old “Bad Liar” singer recently opened up about why she enjoys it so much.
I’m going to be trying out some new music I have been working on and really getting to experiment with different sounds.
I’m also going to do a couple covers of songs I’m loving right now.
Come to think of it, I’m pretty sure the theology in some of those camp songs was more advanced than the ones I’ve heard in some of your services. Yes, there’s a place for repetition in worship — if the words are really that good or pulled directly from Scripture, but even that can be overdone. I confess I don’t have a well-developed strategy for modern worship. I’m just a guy in the pews, a husband, father, and former pastor, frustrated that I just don’t feel like singing by the time the worship music ends.
But, hey, everybody else seems to be really, really enjoying it so maybe it’s just me. The first time we sang the simplistic ditty, I could tolerate it though I thought the infinite God of all creation deserved better. Is endlessly repeating the same chorus a sign of deep meditation or shallow creativity? It seems that focusing on three things would at least be helpful, so here’s what I would like church music to be:or worship your musical talents instead of our musical God.
The sound is pretty much a blend of the music I love to listen to and what feels authentic to me.
Since I have been writing so much, It’s almost like with each song you get to learn a little bit more about me.
Unless, of course, they’ve also learned to fake it.2. By the fifth time, I was hearing echoes of Jesus warning about vain repetitions. Ironically, most of the same evangelical churches that practice this repetition in modern worship music would resist using more formal chants from church history designed for that very purpose. I don’t like what I’ve been feeling in your church. Am I the only one to have this problem or have some of you been faking it too?
