Using the word "worship" to mean church music is a pet peeve of mine. This is the Webster's definition of worship:

Main Entry: 1wor·ship
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English worshipe worthiness, respect, reverence paid to a divine being, from Old English weorthscipe worthiness, respect, from weorth worthy, worth + -scipe -ship
1 chiefly British : a person of importance -- used as a title for various officials (as magistrates and some mayors)
2 : reverence offered a divine being or supernatural power; also : an act of expressing such reverence
3 : a form of religious practice with its creed and ritual
4 : extravagant respect or admiration for or devotion to an object of esteem

There isn't a single mention of music in the definition. God most certainly can be worshipped through music, but worship is so much more than just music. Wish I lived near enough to drop by and take part in the conversation!


i personally think god uses the oed.
