Periodic Reminders

Half the Old Testament is the word Remember. No, that’s not true. It’s 48%. I just rounded up. As Israel forgot, so do we. Today’s insert is a simple reminder of some of the standards we work to maintain as we sing for the Lord. My prayer is that you […]

Timeless Music

Choir Note-Sunday, February 17, 2013

The third session of yesterday’s Preaching Rally was the application of the principle that Timeless is always going to be better than Trendy. No matter what venue, Timeless has been proven and Trendy is always new and changing. Timeless is anchored to something that has endured, while Trendy is always changing to meet current needs.

Have you ever thought of the very definition of Contemporary? “Con” and “temporary” essentially mean “with a short time span” or “with… now.” With the goal or the time span of “now,” Contemporary Christianity is on purpose using today’s plans to reach people.

Compared to Timeless, there’s a big problem with that. Timeless has been tested and proven to work for generation after generation. Trendy or contemporary is never tested… it’s always in the testing phase because it’s always changing to keep up with “now.” The “Songs With Staying Power” handout that we gave you on Sep. 30 of last year was a snapshot of Timeless vs. Trendy. The man being interviewed said in essence that the Contemporary songs are never going to endure because they’re written to reach this generation. When the next generation comes along, their music will be different. Hymns are different. They’re anchored. They will endure.

I’m glad we sing hymns. Let’s choose to be passionate about them.

MUSIC – Periodically I will try to remind you of this… When you turn in music, please separate your music into individual songs or books and stack accordingly (one separate stack per song.) This will really help those who organize the music. Thank you!
