I attend a rather small church and I’m on the worship leader rotation, which means I plan the song service and lead singing about once a month. I wouldn’t say I’m great at leading the congregation in worship, but I enjoy doing it, and I’d like to think that I help them experience God because I put a lot of time into crafting a service. Part of the tightrope that I have to walk in planning a service is making sure that I select songs that will satisfy all age groups, and tastes. However, inevitably someone will be upset because I either haven’t lead enough old hymns, or have used too many new, unfamiliar songs, which leads me to the whole reason I am posting today. At what point in life does one become bitter because someone is trying to teach them new songs at church? Similarly, at what point do I have to stop listening to new music on the radio and start listening to “classic rock” from the 1990’s because I can’t stand the new music of 20–? It seems that everyone reaches a point in their lives where they have little tolerance for new music. Why is that and how can I avoid falling into that trap?
