In the introductory chapter to DiscipleShift, the authors exhort us to not “jump right in and apply a solution” to fix our church. They assert that chances are, the issues plaguing a church go far deeper than just music.

My question is, what challenging issues do you think we are facing together as a church which go beyond music in the worship service? Certainly we have strong differences of preference when it comes to worship music and even worship styles, but what are the deeper issues? In fact, what do you see as the #1 issue or challenge we need to confront and address as a church, and specifically as a session?
