Keith Getty on dangers of modern worship, tells pastors: 'Love your people enough to care about what they sing'

“The pastor goes, ‘I preach the Word. Everybody else do the rest, and I'll just concentrate on the sermon.’ Well, that's, that's stupidity. That's not how the Bible was written. That's not how the Church fathers behaved” - CPost

“How are the lyrics of our worship music forming us?”

"It matters whether those who lead us in song see their task as creating a mood or a memory. If primarily a mood, lyrics can take a back seat .... If primarily a memory, the lyrics are critically important. Like the Psalms, they should be able to stand on their own, combined with music or not." - CToday
