I also hate music, I hate singing and sometimes I hate singing with others.
Why? Cause it sounds terrible and I sound terrible and everyone around me doesn’t care.
So when I go to church (or chapel @ college), I have a love/hate relationship with music. Some weeks I love it, others I can’t stand it. The problem is that music is such a divisive thing, as well as also being something that can be done well and also done poorly.
So often I want to join with Larry Norman and cry out ‘Why does the devil have all the good music?’
Why do I feel part of the community in ‘The Cove’ singing at a Sydney FC match, than when I’m with my brothers and sisters about my Lord and Saviour Jesus?
Have we lost passion in our worship?
Why are we afraid to be emotional when we sing?
What’s wrong with being charismatic?
(On a related side note, the people over at the Mars Hill Music Dept. (Doxologist), have released a song repository. They are so loving sharing all their resources for free, with MP3’s and sheet (chords) music. How awesome, helping other Christians with great resources)
