In session 4 of Napkin, Yancy Richmond spoke about leading children in worship. She cited one stat that by the time a person is 18 years old, he or she will have about 10,000 songs stored away in the memory. Imagine that. I have not tried to test her hypothesis, but it is suggestive of the power of music. Her point was that we are created to worship God (Ps 8:1-2). And, that if we lead kids, they will follow us in worshipping him.
She goes on to ask several questions.
- What does your music sound like?
- Who do you have on stage leading worship?
- Do your leaders look like they like to worship?
- Do you teach why and how we worship?
She also let us on on a little tidbit of information about boys….
*NEWFLASH* Boys like rock ‘n roll.
