Putting Songs Together – Video & Audio from WorshipGod11

At WorshipGod11 I presented this seminar I simply called “Putting Songs Together.” It was an attempt to give people a better grid for choosing what songs to sing in a gathering. Back in 2004 I gave a similar seminar, Choosing Songs Wisely, and thought it was time to update my thoughts on the topic.

Despite the common liturgy of a music time followed by a preaching time, God hasn’t been ultra-clear about how we’re to use music in our meetings. We can include songs in various ways. They can be sung together consecutively, spread throughout the meeting, or at the beginning and end. In this seminar I try to allow for different practices, but also encourage us to think more holistically about our meetings so that they’re Word-driven rather than music-driven.

You can download the outline here and the MP3 here.

I’d love to hear what principles guide you as you think about putting songs together for a meeting.

    I listened to this message again today and I truly appreciate the order and purposefulness that you teach. The tools contained in this session have helped me to be a better worship leader.
