Welcome to the seventeenth edition of the Question of the Week! Please consider sending me your ideas for future questions :)
What's your worship style? Do you prefer hymns or praise songs and choruses? Or perhaps a blend of the two? Do you have a favorite hymn or two that uplifts you? How about praise songs? Do you have any favorites?
My favorite hymn is without a doubt Because He Lives.
This is a song that I just clung to when my dear-dear friend (grandfather-figure), Bobby died back in the fall of 2005. And it's a song that proved itself even more when a year later, I could hold Bobby's grandson in my arms.
I do love praise songs. Mostly. But it is easier for me to tire of them than hymns. A few weeks in a row of singing Lord I Lift Your Name On High doesn't thrill me all that much. I tend to like modern praise--artists like Chris Tomlin, David Crowder Band, Delirious, etc. But these are songs that aren't in my church at least.
