“Be Still” featured in March/April 2012 WORSHIP LEADER Magazine article

The current (March/April 2012 ) issue of Worship Leader magazine has article by Dr. Reggie Kidd on a timely subject– silence in worship. Reggie included the contemplative (in the style of Taizé) musical setting that my good friend Darrell Harris and I wrote of Psalm 46:10a, entitled “Be Still.”

I have used it at St. Bartholomew’s, it is included in The Christian Life Hymnal and according to Reggie, it was recently used in the chapel services at The Robert E. Webber Institute for Worship Studies. The magazine included the score of the song (which is also available on my page at ScoreExchange). Additionally, Reggie made reference to “Our Father in Heaven (The Lord’s Prayer)” which Darrell, who is chaplain at the institute, introduced to the IWS several years ago.

Silence is an important part of worship, and often missing in the modern service–I encourage you to read Reggie’s article [full size here] and think of ways  how you can apply silence in your worship context on a regular basis.
