And now for something more edifying…
I think this is now a golden oldie!
I can’t say I’m personally that big on Hillsong worship. There are some extraordinarily wonderful songs and melodies alongside some that are instantly forgettable.
But at least you know they are worshipping God and it is heart-felt, from Geoff Bullock and Darlene Zschech, Russell Fragar through to the latest batch of writers and worship leaders, who have, of course, built a global presence with their praise and worship ministry. And some of their material is memorable.
Express yourself to God
The main thing, though, whatever your musical tastes, whether you find this kind of church music bland or inspiring, is to be able to express yourself in worship of our great God, and I think Hillsong, amongst others, have been consistent in encouraging people to worship, give thanks, praise, exalt and show devotion to God.
There have been many great hymn and song writers through the ages, and a few songs which will be forgotten, but, for now, it would be a good thing to allow the worship of God to be a focus.
I put this up because landing at this site on that last atheist parable was hurtful to all believers, so I wanted to shift it off the front page and give God first place through worship.
Better to have a time of thanksgiving.
