just a thought...

I really enjoy participating in the the Sunday Set List Carnival at Fred McKinnon's blog. The conversations are often inspiring.

This week on Windbag the Worship Leader we got chatting in the comments about utilizing old goldies (or "vintage songs" as HL likes to call them) in worship sets.
"Not only are they new for the younger generation, and that the older folks really connect...but unchurched people have no clue what is "old" or "new". A great song is simply that, a great song..."

Sadly, for a few years the vintage songs got thrown out with bath water.
I was blessed early on to have a worship leader who insisted on adding a vintage song almost every week. Along with a secular song that fit the message. Man, we caught a lot of flack for that.
What are your thoughts on adding "vintage songs" into worship?
