When was the last time you were honest about how many people sing in your church? Do almost all your people sing? Do half? Do a quarter? In my experience about 80 percent of people arrive at church in no mood to sing. Some days I arrive in no mood to sing. If we start singing assuming that everyone is pumped and eager, then we can inadvertently leave a majority of people behind.
This series of blogs entitled "Engaging the 80 Percent" deals with techniques you can use to be more effective in promoting communal singing in your congregation. Check back for the next installments on this topic.
