When you hear the word performance as it relates to your worship team, does it make you cringe? Or does it excite you?
In more conversations than I can count, I’ve heard performance thrown around as a dirty word.
This is not a performance. This is worship.”
I get where these comments come from. Matter of fact, I’ve said them myself. What I want to guard against is demonizing performance. If you play music in your local church, there’s no need to avoid the word performance or think of it as something less than true worship.
Performance and worship don’t need to be mutually exclusive.
