I always find myself frustrated at the lack of depth, or, the superficiality of music in worship services. While I’m not against using songs that are popular, I believe in presenting more than the best selling songs of the day. I have compiled, into 2 Amazon listmania lists, a small assortment of songs fit for use in congregational settings, yet most are rarely heard in worship -too new, too old, too obscure, too fast, too aggressive, sound more like background music. Many excuses to mask the truth: most modern churches are businesses and thus are consumer driven, therefore they use topical, superficial. “accessible”  songs that occupy the Billboard Christian charts to attract “seekers,” i.e. trend-seekers..

There are more than these 80 songs, but this is a start. Not all of these fall in the categories I mentioned above.

I hope these songs bless you and your congregation.
