With so many
great new worship songs out there, there's a temptation to grab
whatever is flashy and cool and throw it into your next worship
set; but we must be much more intentional about the songs we choose
and introduce to our congregation. We are the "Gatekeepers" of our
church's "worship vocabulary". We put the words on their lips that
shape their theology and view of God, so we must be very
intentional. In this episode, I give 5 questions that you should
ask before introducing that new song, as well as a few tips for the
song curation and introduction process. Enjoy, and please share
with anyone who may be helped by this episode!

introduce that song, ask: Is it Biblical, Is it clear, Is it
singable, Is it God-centered, Is it
necessary? -Tweet That!
