|Title: Family Worship|
Subtitle: FOREIGN IMPORT / Includes 100 Songs
The challenge of leading worship when all ages are present is one which can daunt many service and worship leaders! The old adage that 'you can't please all of the people all of the time' can sometimes seem far too appropriate for all age services. Do you use 'children's songs' at the risk of patronizing the youth; do you use 'youth songs' at the risk of alienating the adults; do you use 'adult songs' at the risk of failing to engage with the children and youth?
Where the Family Worship collection of songs really comes into it's own is in the provision of a broad range of material that crosses the (artificial) boundaries that can be perceived to exist between worship for adults, children and youth. The songs have lyrics that are accessible to children, yet acceptable to adults, and they have a depth and weight that is sometimes lacking in the 'lighter' type of songs that sometimes tend to be used in all-age services. The musical styles are very varied, and it is this variety that gives the collection its strength - in using a selection of songs in any one service, you will go a long way to ensuring that there really is something for everyone.
