If you’re a worship leader, you’ve faced your share of criticisms. Sometimes it’s subtle. Sometimes it’s openly hostile. Brendan Prout explains how we want to respond but probably shouldn’t:
Let’s be clear. I would never actually say any of these things to a church member whom has come to complain that the music was too loud. But I’ll be completely honest: I’ve thought every one of these things in my head and kept them to myself… and I suspect a great many pastors, worship leaders, musicians, and sound techs have also had these thoughts.
What we might say if we had no filter and paid no attention the books of James or Proverbs in how we responded to worship complaints…
I think we’ve all had these thoughts without daring to say them out loud. How about you?
