Top 20 Worship - The Death of Creativity
I am tired! Very tired! Tired of the "twenty song deep" worship lists that are invading the church. And I don't think I'm alone. In fact, it's getting to the point that I can "almost" impersonate a prophet by predicting the songs that will be included in the worship set of about any given contemporary church long before Sunday services. Song choices and formats play a crucial role for worship leaders when it comes to orchestrating and designing corporate worship services. Opportunities for uniqueness abound as the choices are all but endless. But quite honestly, many worship leaders are stuck in a rut, taking the easy way forward. And church services are suffering from a lack of creativity. I believe that predictability is the enemy of creativity, and I'm perceiving a huge epidemic of predictability in the church. Even beyond the songs.
