Introducing a New Song
When introducing a new song, many worship leaders will schedule the song 2 weeks in a row, take a week off, do the song 1 more week, and then shelve it for a few weeks. After that, it’s in the regular rotation. We need to remember that by the first week we play the song, we have lived with it for several weeks. We have spent time evaluating it, picking it apart, and then learning every part and piece. But the congregation has spent no time with the song. We have it in our spirit, we feel the power that the song has because of the intimate time we have spent with it. Introduce it in a way that allows the congregation to learn it and gives them grace for not having spent any time with it yet.
