WMC-0152 – The New Regular, Once A Month Attender and The Tension It Creates In Worship

The New Regular, Once A Month Attender and The Tension It Creates In Worship I have heard, in at least three separate leadership podcasts that the new regular attender in America is once a month. Two of the podcasts said once a month, another said once every six weeks. Not only does this create problems for the church in too many ways to mention in this post, it creates problems for worship pastors and worship ministries. That’s...

Chris Tomlin, Love Ran Red – Review and Giveaway!

My feelings about Chris Tomlin have a fairly wide variation.  I realize that I am often in the minority in worship circles, nevertheless, I will once again offer my opinions about the latest Chris Tomlin album, arriving soon at a church near you. I will say that I was pleasantly surprised to find a little more variation in approach on this album. There are some typical formulaic approaches to some of the songs, but it was better than...
