    Pipe organ and acoustic instruments.
    A mixture of hymns and praise choruses.
    A healthy emphasis on the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering every December.
    New American Standard Version.
    But, hey, that’s just Baby Boomer Me whose Southern Baptist-ness goes back for several generations.
    But, I’m SURE I could be led to change . . . . uh . . . .couldn’t I? Just don’t jerk me around TOO quickly.

    Yep. I have my preferences too. I try to test them on the cultural versus spiritual relevance scale. Occasionally I feel the need to get further guidance (as with the “elimination of Sunday School” debate) and I have always found a staff willing to address my concerns.

    I’m thinking that your statement “Have the courage to spill your heart to an array of people within the church.” Means that we should allow our pastors to lead and to not be too rough on them as long as they stay within biblical parameters (and ours do), to openly discuss matters of tradition or choice, and in all things to strive for unity in the church.
