Interested in the continuing role of hymns and singing hymns as part of church services?
Author and pastor Matt Boswell gives voice to several of the benefits of continuing to incorporate hymns into worship services both now and into the future, and the important roles hymns can play as part of corporate worship.
“When I mention historic hymns, maybe you cringe as you recall a ‘worship war’ in your local church. Maybe you’re eager to only sing the old hymns. Or maybe you wonder why it is important at all. My aim is not to renew local church disputes or bolster mere sentimentality, but to commend something else altogether — to encourage younger churches to remember their history by joining with the countless men and women who have shared these songs over hundreds of years.”
