I miss the church and worship music of my youth
Church music helped make it more than “church”. It wasn’t just a place to listen to a speaker, or have discussions. It was a also a place you could “feel” good thanks to music. And it was easy to get involved with choir and solo opportunities. I enjoy alternative spiritual “groups”, but they aren’t the same either. And music is part of the difference.
Worship music helps me personally “focus”. That is true not just in the global church setting, but also individually. My meditative experiences when I was younger included my singing worship type songs. I realize now that was how I focused, and far similar reasons its why I still hum at times. I want to meditate now also, and I need music.
