This morning I had the joy of spending an hour talking and answering questions about worship leading/philosophy/songs/service planning, and many other things on the “Mid-Morning” program on WBCL, a Christian radio station based in Ft. Wayne, Indiana.
Lynne Ford had read my article “Responding to the Increasingly Short Shelf-Life of Worship Songs” and asked me to share some of my thoughts on the current landscape of worship music, and how worship leaders and people in the pews might approach worship from a biblical standpoint.
We covered a whole lot of ground, and you might enjoy listening in.

I am very encouraged by your sharing.
Though our styles differ, our hearts are the hearts of Worshipers! \o/
As I was preparing a CD of the broadcast for “The Powers That Be” at church, I was musing on your thoughts about thirds in song selection, this scripture came to mind:
Matthew 13:52 He said to them, Therefore every teacher and interpreter of the Sacred Writings who has been instructed about and trained for the kingdom of heaven and has become a disciple is like a householder who brings forth out of his storehouse treasure that is new and [treasure that is] old [the fresh as well as the familiar]. Amplified
When you consider Music a two-fold Treasure this scripture is very appropriate.
Listening to the interview now. That station is my stomping grounds. Thank you for the reminder that my service is not “paying taxes.” Its so easy to forget that.
