Brooke Ligertwood and Ben Fielding from Hillsong Worship join me on Episode 35 of the More Than The Music Podcast to tell the stories behind their album, “Let There Be Light,” and why worship music should be taken seriously.
Brooke and Ben share the strenuous process that each song goes through before it’s ever sung.
It’s costly. We don’t just kinda sit around going, “Oh, let’s drum up some clever thoughts and some great melodies and put it out there.” There’s a weightiness and a sacredness to worship and to bringing an offering to God that we don’t take lightly. We don’t take ourselves seriously but we take the offering seriously. We take worship seriously. We take God seriously…
Before a song or a lyric is ever brought before a congregation, it’s been gone through with a fine toothed comb by our Global Teaching Pastors to make sure what we’re saying is correct and truthful.
