My Journey Away from Contemporary Worship Music | Anchorline

February 3, 2015 — Leave a comment

This is the title of a post on Dan Cogan’s blog.  While he and I are not members of the same faith/church, his message is one that I’ve been thinking about for several years now.  Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy listening to comtemporary Christian music.  Phillips, Craig, and Dean is one of my favorite groups to listen to, as well as many others.  But listening to it for pleasure or entertainment is not the same as incorporating it into a worship setting.

Even in the church that I’m a member of (which sings a capplla only) there is an effort to incorporate these contemporary Christian songs into worship.  The significant problem with that is that most of those songs do not sound good being sung a cappella.

As this author discusses, the main problem is people shying away from using hymns in worship.

If you are involved in leading worship in a church, or if you have a heart for worship, take the time to read this article.
