Why Sing in Church?, Chris Russell – Video and Discussion Outline
Rev. Canon Chris Russell answers the question, “Why sing in church?”
Questions for Discussion:
As we receive the gift of song that God has given us, what does it mean to think about giving that gift back to God in collective song?
The previous question really is the bigger question in miniature, according to Russell: “Why do we worship? And what can that encounter with God look like, through song, through the Sacraments, through the spoken Word, etc?”
If God lives in everyone, what does it mean to worship in a way that incorporates God’s presence in all of us? How might including everyone in worship actually be including God in that worship? And how does it feel to have that responsibility placed upon us as we craft worship services?
