Once in a while circumstances deal us a situation that starts us thinking what if? Our pianist is fighting cancer. We have other musicians. But what if we didn't? In fact, what if all forms of music were banned for six months from our churches? And when it returned, what if we could only read the lyrics for six months? Would it make any difference in which church you attend? And when you could play and sing the music portion again, would you still do the same songs? No matter what the music style of a church, I suspect that if there were no music for six months in any churches in our particular town, several things would happen: 1. I think some folks only come for the music and would leave. This applies equally to the traditional, contemporary, rock contemporary, and southern gospel style churches we have here. 2. I think some folks who are picking their church on music style would switch churches if they actually decided based on what is taught, prayed, and preached. 3. I think some folks would be satisfied that they have picked right and stay right where they are. 4. I think during the six months that songs could be read aloud but not played or sung a whole lot of all the music genres would be weeded out. No matter your style, some pieces are musically wonderful and lyrically pitiful. What do you think would happen in your particular area?
