    Hello, some truth in that but also a lot lies.
    You make quite a severe judgment on thing and you do not even sign your post ;(
    I have been, according to your posts, a mediocre worship leader on two point. I’m spontaneous and refuse to make list for 20 of the 30 years of leading worship. And after this 30 years, I learn to simplify some of the song I wrote back to “poor melody line and 3 or 4 chords songs” as I realized with experience that most of the people i the church were just unable to flow with when it start to be just to complicated for there skill. I rather lead the people of God in the mountain than go there alone, (or with a couple of musicians) and let the other look at me as such a great musician ! I’m not here for a concert, but to help people to enter in the holy of holies.
    Excuse my broken english, it’s not my first language.

      Thank u for your comment Mikael, appreciate your feedback!

      If you are consistently looking to serve your people by using songs that are within their vocal ability, that’s not mediocrity, agreed 🙂

      However, spontaneity is not greater than planning, the Holy Spirit inspires both. When working as a band, prayerfully planning your set lists is always the better option.

        I guess that the best option is the one that suit you to give your best to the Lord. I prepare myself as a worshiper, some other pray and make list. When we play in a band we spent a lot of time together, practicing but also in fellowship. We learn to flow together in the Spirit. I guess there is no better option but the one that God give you to apply.
        Bless you.

          A band that regularly meets to rehearse, fellowship and prepare is not a mediocre band by any means Mikael 🙂

          Why don’t you write a guest post here about your band rehearsal/fellowship/flowing in the Spirit experiences? Things like what worked well, what can be improved, tips etc.
