My church has been through a few worship pastors in the past few years, and one thing I've noticed about the music is that it keeps getting louder. Keep in mind, I'm 23 and a musician, so I'm comfortable around loud music.
However, the sanctuary's not that big, and the speakers are set up on tall stands at the front. The music and the bass is so powerful that it shakes the windows,and it's so strong in my chest that sometimes I feel a little breathless! The church keeps a basket of earplugs outside in the foyer! My heart aches when I see parents bringing their babies (yes newborn babies!) into the sanctuary for worship, I know it must be affecting their poor little baby ears.
I find it almost impossible to worship God with music that loud. I know for a fact that several people have said to the worship pastor AND the head pastor that the music is too loud, and they refuse to do anything about it. I really don't think that's right. I personally feel like it's more of a concert than worship. Don't get me wrong, I love the new rock worship music, but how can I get my pastor or worship pastor to listen to any of us?
Should i just shut up and deal with it, or do something about it?
