short songs in worship

May 30, 2011

It’s always surprising to me that the Church doesn’t do a better job of using song in all the ways that scripture does.  Especially when it comes to sticcatto songs of praise.  While worship choruses have received a grand thumping in recent years I’ve grown more convinced of the wisdom and benefit of using shorter songs in worship.  They are easy to learn, provide great balance to dense hymnody, are more accessible for an intergenerational congregation, and can help with transitions in the service.  They also exist across the spectrum of worship and music styles.
