Keith and Kristyn Getty, who have written many beautiful hymns for corporate worship, have written a book called Sing! This book’s primary focus is not on how to better improve the singing of your worship team, but encourages a different question–How is your congregation singing?
Often the focus for worship is shifted to the musicians and those on the stage who are leading which results in the congregation becoming spectators like at a concert. We are all commanded to sing together to edifiy one another, not as an island promoting ourselves.
I think this book is a great resource for all believers and is desperately needed in our churches. It reminds us that there is a far bigger picture in this life than ourselves, and that church music must be evaluated in light of God’s grand plan for the church.
