Hymns And Choruses
In two of my Churches, choruses were introduced to the worship, where there were only hymns before. In both cases, this was welcomed, and choruses are sung to this day. However, throughout my ministr(ies) -- every Sunday -- I have retained hymns. Yesterday I spoke to a (retired) minister who did the same. While he wouldn't include, he said, See the Golden Orb of Day, hymns are rich in content and tradition. Many choruses, he said, "have nothing in them". OBSERVATION: Yet there are reasons why choruses have become popular, and it is not only because they are trendy. One finds a different kind of worship in the choruses, for one thing.
