Why you think music is necessary in the worship service
Thought (historical) - the use of music in the worship service has changed relatively little since biblical times. How has church music been interpreted by various generations of people to reach its present state?
Thought (physical) - the human has five senses. In addition to singing, how might you use these senses to enhance musical worship in the service?
Thought (philosophical) - is your philosophy based on your own enjoyment of music or would it be beneficial in aiding the congregation at large to worship?
Thought (philosophical) - Kierkegaarde stated that our worship services are performed for God who is the audience. How does this philosophy impact your own philosophy?
Thought (administrative) - The life of the Minister of Music includes continual training and learning, planning, stress, mundane as well as exciting moments, almost 24-hour responsibilities, and self-sacrificing service. How is this idea incorporated into your philosophy?
Thought (practical) - How will your philosophy aid in teaching the choir and congregation about church music?
