Doing blended worship is hard. Doing blended worship well is really, really hard. But even in the most modern of churches, we need to consider and include the great historical songs of our faith.
To answer the question “Why should I play music that old people like?” I want to explore three responses: 1. Contemporary worship music is not the only authentic response to God; 2. We must be intentional about building up the whole congregation; 3. Those older songs provide theological and emotional depth to our repertoire.
