A worship song can be full of deep theological truth and still not be a good fit your congregation. Michael Strand writes:
I get many e-mails and comments from people about songs they’ve heard on the radio or from friends that they love and really want to sing at church. I’ll listen to all of them, but very rarely have they been a song that will make it to the list of songs we sing at church. Often it’s not because they’re bad songs (although some are!), but it’s usually because they’re either lacking in clarity, difficult to learn to sing, or far too individualistic.
What criteria do you use to determine if a song is congregation-friendly?
