Session 5: The Role of Music in WorshipMay 24, 2022
What is the role of music in worship? In previous episodes we have discussed that worship is so much more than just music. However, music still plays an important role in Scripture. There is the song of Moses, and the song of the Lamb. There is the book of Psalms, and there is Temple music. There are even places in Scripture where music is an imperative. (“Sing praises to the LORD, O you his saints…” Psalm 30:4).
So then, what role should music play in our congregations? What guidelines and issues should we consider about when it comes to worship songs?
