Many churches struggle, fight, and (often) even split over musical style and preferences. This is a sad reality, because music is a gift to build the church, not a weapon to destroy it. In this month’s episode I talk with Mike Harland, the Director Lifeway Worship about what caused the “Worship Wars” of the 80’s and 90’s, how the fallout is still affecting us today, and how we can move beyond it to shepherd our people with music that transcends genre and points people to Christ. If you’re struggling with fighting, dissension, and critical comments from your congregants, or if you’re just wondering how musical style fits into the grand scheme of worship, this episode is for you.
