I came across this video today of N.T. Wright discussing modern worship songs. I’ve had a lot of conversations with other pastors and friends about why I don’t play a lot of modern songs when I lead worship. This video spells a lot of my reasoning out pretty well. So I’ll not bore you with my explanations and let the video do the talking because Wright states it much more poignantly than I could.
I’m curious what other thoughts some of you might have on the topic. Also, what other reasons might you have for or against using modern worship songs.
Thanks to Todd Wright for posting this video. He is a worship pastor in Texas and is also in the process of finishing up a new record. You should check him out.
