Great thoughts from our friend Trent Smith today.
“I am so grateful to lead worship for a church community that embraces both classic hymnody and current worship music. True “blended worship” is not a constraint, but a liberty.
“I’m too cool for traditional music, but I’ll throw in a hymn to pacify you” is a selfish and condescending attitude that has no place in ministry.
“Current music is tainted and juvenile, but then–so are you” is an equally prideful and condescending attitude. Worship leaders: stop posturing and minister.
It grieves me that the evangelical church in America has so largely given up on multi-generational worship. We need to re-think our priorities.” – Trent Smith
