Last night, our teen band led worship for the adults in our midweek service. They’re a little more edgy than what we do typically (and a little more my taste, personally), but our people at least tolerate them. Before the service, one of our greeters, who is in her 70’s, saw Kyle, the worship leader, in the hall, and said to him, “I just love it when you guys lead worship. It’s so much fun!”
Her statement did my heart good. I hear of too many churches in which it’s the older generation constatly battling the younger generations over styles (particularly music) and sometimes over beliefs. I guess…no, I know I’m blessed to be a part of a church where at least some of our older folks are as passionate about worship as our younger people are regardless of the style or volume of the music.
