Honoring Christ In Our Singing-Day 4

TEXT IN SINGING | Pt. 2 Continuing from Day 3, one more thing emerges for our consideration in our songs. If we think back to the words of Colossians 3:16, our singing is actually supposed to “teach and admonish one another in all wisdom, through singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs.” Dave Yauk in The Tempo of Discipleship: The Rudiments and Rhythms to Shaping Followers of Christ helps us devise some quick learning...

Honoring Christ In Our Singing-Day 2

TOTAL SINGING  One of my Professors in college once said that most Christians are struggling deeply with their faith because they believe in a “canon within a Canon.” He shared this when talking about the 66-book Canon (or standard) of Scripture. What he meant is that most people cherry-pick verses from the Scriptures in whatever manner they like, and assemble the truths (apart from their context) into beautiful worldview bokeh...

Honoring Christ In Our Singing-Day 1

Day 1 | FOR THE MIND, THE BODY & THE SOUL Songs are important to us! They not only have the power to equip us for a good car ride, but the world is making every effort to perpetually define the style, the songs and the artists that are appropriate for the training of the human mind, body and soul. We must realize that God created singing, and thus as its grand architect, he knows completely its purpose and appropriate...

Honoring Christ In The Psalms-Day 3

Our Jesus, experienced the full spectrum of human experience and emotion while on earth. If we are to truly become “Christ-like,” we too are going to have to be equipped for all that life may bring. I believe it is the Psalms that prepare us with such a “strength of soul.” Each day in this study, we will ask you to explore a particular genre of poetic writing in the Psalms. We will ask for you to fellowship with the Lord in prayer...

Soak: Giving People Time To “Take It All In”

A while ago we were privileged to be able to interview Jon Egan on the podcast and he shared with us a very important concept. And it’s one that I think we need should spend more time thinking about as worship leaders. Let me explain. We live on a farm. During the summer it can get to be pretty dirty around here. The first summer we lived in this house they were doing some logging. The dirt on the logging road was a real fine...

My Worth is Not My Own

One of the greatest struggles we each face is the search for significance. Our 21st-century sense of identity is grounded in individualism, self-entitlement, and narcissism. From whom we marry to what career choice we make to what church we attend to what we think of church music, every choice is geared around what these things do for us. This attitude of consumerism is one of the most prevalent idols in Western culture and has become...

Reconsidering Why We Sing, Part 5: Target Practice

Part 5  |  What about Target Practice By Dave Yauk In Review… Before you read this visit Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 and Part 4. In previous posts we’ve looked at reconsidering the nature of our corporate singing in church. We’ve considered our singing through the use of these words: total, text, tone and target. I’ve also provided a resource called the Song Selection Rubric, that enables one to plug in their songs and categorize them...
