#71 Worship leaders asking folks to "really think about the words to this next song"
Worship leaders want to break it down for a minute. After some rousing worship anthems, it’s time to get serious. This is when they’ll play the first chords of something evocative (like “As The Deer” or “Softly and Tenderly”) and they'll say,
“I want everyone to really think about the words to this next song.”
*During this pensive time the worship leader will sometimes add "God is speaking to you." Now, how does he know that? (Maybe it's coming through the earpiece of his headset mic.)
