Would You Believe What These Young People Sang!

Margaret, my wife of 47 years, and I recently spoke at a Christian youth fellowship. Would you believe they used a hymn book and they all sang the hymns! The youngest to the oldest in high school all sang loudly.

In comparison, when I spoke in the three services of a large church, I noticed the only ones singing were those on stage. We stood for 30 minutes while they performed as loud as they could to be heard over the drummer in his cage. The songs were oh, so loud and repetitive (over and over and over again) and certainly were not biblical or worshipful.

In our services, let's teach ALL our people to sing songs and hymns of worship that praise our glorious Savior! If only the praise and worship groups sing, then they are not leading the worship.
