But you wouldn’t know it on Sunday morning when I visit your church. I’m sure many churches, maybe even yours, get it right. My experiences with modern worship music in evangelical Christianity often leaves me not just silent, but wondering if I should be joining George Bailey in making a quick exit from the agony. And just when I think that maybe it’s just me having a selfish and sinful attitude — a very real possibility — a flamboyant electrical guitar solo breaks out.
[See my post Why I Left Your Seeker-Friendly Church.] Instead of feeling the joy of joining with other believers in offering praises to the Almighty, I often feel insulted, bored, and disconnected from 2,000 years of worship history.
But even then, it’s a remix that requires melodic jujitsu to keep up with the quicker pace and fancier chord progressions. Some readers will laugh, others will cry with empathy, while others will try to burn it – perhaps not the wisest thing to do with an e-book, but so long as they don’t use any four-letter words, I suppose it’s all good.
One distinguishing mark of the worship music of centuries past is that it generally focused more on content than today’s simplisitc style.
