1. How do you respond to the romantic flavor of some worship lyrics? 2. To what extent are our responses like these flavored by outside influences? For instance, are the responses in this study reflective of what the young adults have been sensitized to by teachers and writers? Worship majors were excluded from this study—do you think they might have responded differently? 3. If only a fourth of the males in worship are bothered by romantic lyrics is that “enough” to use care in using such lyrics? What percentage of worshippers does it take to cause a worship leader to change the selection of worship songs? 4. As a worship leader, what steps might you take to test how the lyrics are coming across to the worshippers? 5. To what extent is a study like this valid? What if 100% of the respondents said they “like worship just the way it is” is that enough reason for leaving things as they are or are there other factors a worship leader should consider in planning worship? If you think there are other fctors what are they? 6. This study found that young adult males most negatively cited the subjective nature of lyrics more than their romantic suggestiveness. In what way are these two different? Similar? 7. The fourth most common negative response to these lyrics was the feeling of being inauthentic in singing them—feeling like a fake. How might this kind of feeling affect a worshipper’s response in an actual worship setting? How might it be addressed? 8. The author of chapter 3 calls for more “Corporate love lyrics” in place of personal ones. Can you cite any examples of these? How would you reword some of the current romantic lyrics so they represent the people of God rather than the individual singer? What are the positive aspects of such a change? Negative aspects?
