Sing! : Why and How We Should Worship
Author: Keith Getty, Kristyn Getty
Why do you sing at church?
It’s a question we almost never ask out loud. Yet, this is a question that is central to the lives of Christians who regularly gather together for worship.
Do you sing to God? Or do you “address one another in hymns and spiritual songs,” as the Scripture says? Do you close your eyes? What is your posture in worship? This book is designed with these questions in mind.
Or maybe you don’t sing at church—or if you do, not with very much enthusiasm, hoping to hide behind a wall of sound. After all, not everyone sings at the same skill level, same rhythm, or pitch.Authors, lyricists, and worship leaders, Keith and Kristyn Getty write to church members to remind them why the Church should sing, when the Church should sing, and how the Church should sing. A congregation that gains a greater understanding of why they sing won’t dread a worship service, with arms crossed and shoulders slumped, but see singing as an opportunity to proclaim the gospel together in obedience to God.
Sing! guides individual church members together with their congregation on a campaign to declare with one voice, This is why we sing!
