We wanted to pose the question to what many of you think about about Songwriting in Worship. Much of what we think about is the Pre-Fabrication of Worship Music, much of what happens in Nashville, Tennessee and around the world.
Confessions of a Worship Leader stated a few months ago:
“I say all that to say, I understand what the songwriter goes through. I also know, however, that a lot of what gets used in church comes from songwriters with the “Nashville Songwriting Formula” that no one knows about but those who are privy to it’s use. They go into the studio on Monday morning and bang out a song by mid-afternoon and a few months of production later, it’s in a church near you.”
It seems that so many artists and worship leaders go around today, writing with random writers just to get the next hit song to sell to the church. Not all artists are involved with this, and the ones we find that do write the majority of their songs usually have the most creativity.
Where is the heart? Where is the truth? Where is the originality?
Do you truly think God blesses a song that was written for the motive just to sell?
These are questions that we ponder. Lets hear some of your thoughts.
