I typically go my church’s 7 am service. Today is Couples Sunday and our pastor gave his spiel about couple’s staying together, Valentine’s Day, and love, then it was time for ‘Meet and Greet’. I was a little stunned at what came across the speakers — Beyonce’s “Love on Top“.
I’m all for keeping abreast of pop culture and bringing it in as a teachable moment, but not as background music to meeting and greeting visitors and one another. I’m not a club or a dance party, I’m at church and I am of the opinion that either you have no music or play softly in the background or if you must use a pop song choose one that can double as a Christian song (i.e. Bette Midler‘s “Wind Beneath My Wings or Josh Groban‘s “You Raise Me Up or some such song).
Chime in. What are your thoughts?
