Free worship is worship that you do freely, that is with little or no structure.
Free Worship Can Really be Free
Some worship teams find this easy, and for some it is absolutely never going to happen. Many churches and worship leaders are uncomfortable with the whole concept of open worship, but let me ask a question, is it something we should be terrified of?
Worship should just be an expression of the heart, our heartfelt love for our Lord flowing freely. However, most of what we do in worship leading is more about structure or performance than it is about freedom.
The thing is, most of us are a little uncomfortable with situations we cannot control. Losing control is not a thing we enjoy, so the prospect of worship unbridled and free is, well let’s just say, slightly uncomfortable. We’re a bit like Michal watching David dancing and worshipping before the ark of the covenant.
2 Samuel 6:16
As the ark of the Lord came into the city of David, Michal the daughter of Saul looked out of the window and saw King David leaping and dancing before the Lord, and she despised him in her heart.
Yet, as this podcast explores, we really have nothing to fear about free or open worship. It doesn’t have to be weird, tongues, or out of control at all. It doesn’t have to be prolonged, but just a few bars for people to worship without constraint is doable, no matter how conservative the church. You can have freedom in your worship and you can make free worship an acceptable part of your church worship today.
