A topic that hasn’t been touched on hardly at all - MUSIC, specifically worship music. I have a “playlist” of my absolute favorite worship music that I can pull up almost anytime I want. It is on my computer and my iPhone, and I can listen as well as participate almost anywhere - at work, at play, resting, mowing, etc.
Personally, I love music that is soothing, and directed toward our loving Father God. I don’t care for “worship leaders” or performers who seem to be drawing more attention to themselves than to God and Jesus. I also want my worship music to be solid and sound with theology and Scripture. Again, personally, I don’t readily care for some of the music that has propagated in the “millennial”-focused church settings. Especially lots of repetition of verses or choruses, or lots of loud (screaming, screeching, hype…) “craziness.” (I am really letting out my opinions, here - hey that’s who I am.)
Face it, I am older (65 now), so my tastes are what they are. But I am also open to new worship music as well.
For instance, I really appreciate Michael W. Smith (“Breathe” - “I can hear your voice” - “Ancient Words”) and Bob Fitts (YWAM) (“I believe” - “Is that really you Lord” - “He is Lovely”), Michele Pillar, Petra, Hillsong, Vineyard, and so on. When I have a little more time, I will share my full FAVORITE WORSHIP list here.
What are your favorites?
