We sang a set of four contemporary praise/worship songs at the beginning of the service -- all good etc. But the sermon prompted me to think about the songs: they were all very unitarian, rather than Trinitarian. Lots of 'Praise God' and 'You are Holy', and 'How great is God'. Lots of wonder in God; the stars speak of his majesty etc. They were good. And we loved singing them. But they seemed to lack the depth and power of a Trinitarian faith.
Now, this is just a gut impression. I haven't really checked out whether its true against the lyrics.
- So is my impression true?
- Are the classic Hymns more Trinitarian? (besides Be Thou My Vision!)
