A Very Brief Thought on Contemporary Worship Music

All music was at one time contemporary.

Lee,
Just want to drop you a line expressing my appreciation for your blogsite. I check it out at least three or four times each week to see what's new.

Keep up the great work. Perhaps, by the grace of God, more Christians will come to realize that it is God himself who defines the nature of love and grace.

Wow! Could you expound on that a little more. (

Yeah, more explanation. Anyway, keep up the good work. I found you through purgatorio. Good job man. I'm adding you to my links.

Often "Contemporary Music" is a euphemism for a "Celebration style worship."

What bathwater is that new music coming with?

Sorry, Lee! I posted in response to a different blog other than this one on Contemporary Worship Music. That's why my note makes no sense whatsoever in this context. Duhhh! Plase forgive me!

Once again... love your blog site.

For those looking for more clarification...

This was just a passing thought I had about those who constantly lament the lack of "traditional" music in worship. If the words are biblically sound and the music is uplifting and God-glorifying, then I don't really see a problem. Even the old hymns (which I love dearly, and which our church sings regularly) were once considered "contemporary" worship music.

Just give me the sheet music, so I can follow along, as well as the lyrics, and don't put a "worship team" in front of me and I'm fine.
