Rev. J, over at “Adventures in Revland” was looking at the U2charist liturgy.
It is an interesting application of modern music and modern worship. It does come with a warning, as it were. While this group is encouraging the use of its music in such settings, they are also very particular about where and when their music is used, as well they should. They wrote the music, they have the copyright and we need to respect that.
If you are interested, check out the comments that follow his post.
But it should give us pause to think about other music that we might use in our worship services.
I posted a piece back in November, 2006, entitled “A Rock and Roll Revival” in which I listed some personal favorites that one might use in a worship service. I followed that up with “The Rock and Roll Revival Continued” in January, 2007
And this morning, it occurred to me that my opening prayer could by “Day by Day” (from Godspell)
Day by day
Oh Dear Lord
Three things I pray
To see thee more clearly
Love thee more dearly
Follow thee more nearly
Day by day
As always, I welcome suggestions for this “order of worship”
