While Tom Ascol was away last week, he had Ken Puls filling in as guest blogger at Founders Ministry Blog. His topic over a four-part series was Finding Our Voices in Worship. In this series Puls guides the reader through three tests to use in selecting music for worship.
- Part one deals with the veracity of music.
- Part two deals with the suitability of music.
- Part three deals with the authenticity of music.
- Part four gives suggestions for ways to help a church find its voice. (not yet posted)
These tests are made up of scriptural as well as pragmatic considerations. To be sure, these tests are very general, leaving a bit of wiggle room for musical style and taste; but if you are honest in your assessment, and truly desire to please God through your church singing, then you will find this series of posts most helpful.
