    Depends on how you define "drastic." Could you be more specific?

    I agree that you need to ask something specific. I cannot answer the question as it stands because I don't know what you mean by "drastic changes" either. As a general rule, however, I find that "drastic changes" are usually more necessary in the hearts of people rather than in worship styles.

    I dislike drums in the sanctuary! I especially dislike it when a church drains the baptistry to facilitate the drummer. I fall into disfavour when the drummer starts a soft drumroll whilst I am offering up prayer. All things that happened in one church where I was guest preacher. Oh my!

    Cheers,

    Jim

    Change is never easy. Change is not necessarily evil. Yet to change for the sake of "change" or abandon positive heritage and truth to become more "contemporary" or "relevant" is shakey at best.

    Give me some old solid doctrinal hymns, some praise and testimony of God's grace, and expository preaching of the Word and that would fit my concept of "church".

    Dislike change from that. But living with it! :rolleyes:

    Saggy, this particular church had little space, and to fit the drum set in they drained the baptistry and put the drums in there.

    Cheers,

    Don't they baptize anyone? I believe this should always be ready if needed. [​IMG]

    I like drums. In the sanctuary. Played well.

    Never heard of doing that before, but I certainly agree with you on this one.

    Definitely.

    I would love a "drastic" change in worship.

    It would be wonderful to see Jesus, Highly Exalted and Lifted Up in a worship service.

    But with the performance and entertainment mentality in most churches, the only thing that comes close to being lifted up is the music leader's or pastor's toupee.
