Josh Hamrick talks about being a missionary to the community around his church, and makes a provocative statement:
Now, this discussion must be taken with the assumption that God has no favorite genre. If He does, we should only play that style. Seeing that we don’t know His style preference, we must conclude that all musical styles (more or less) are equal, and the content is where God finds pleasure.
Josh’s choices have somewhat to do with geography: the community that he serves is in the country, not the city. What stylistic choices do you find yourself making in worship planning, and how do you choose what is “pleasing to God?”
