Use of the word 'contemporary'
Have any of you ever noticed that churches that already have firm contemporary worship in place and are not fighting the worship wars (Mega churches & cutting edge churches are clear examples) don't even use the word "contemporary" in their vocabulary?
If you have noticed this, I simply ask why do you think that is?
Part of it is tradition- many church denominations still have 'traditional' services or both services, and need to differentiate.
I'm sure before the 'contemporary' movement started, they didn't use the word 'traditional', either.
As times change and contemporary became mainstream, there wasn't a need to point out it is 'contemporary'.
