The Role of the Arts in Worship



By: Chris Howell

When you read or hear the word ”worship,” if you are a “church” person most often your mind recalls your favorite Christian song, or at least the one that you can’t seem to get out of your head at the present moment. We tend to associate the concept of worship with the song selection on Sunday morning. If you expand the word to include ”worship service” then your mind might include a sermon, or maybe even communion. But most often must people just reduce the idea of worship to music.
