Returning to classics

A new thing, is afoot. It seems some contemporary mega-churches who long ago cast off the traditional worship, are now returning to the classics, buying hymnals, choir robes, and offering more traditional worship services because they percieved a need for it. Alot of older folks did not feel at home in the contemporary service, and there is the occasional young person who just prefers the traditional worship. I know a few of those myself.
Regardless of who "won the worship wars" I think most people are realizing that we don't need to "take sides" but really can benefit from various types and styles of worship, that emphasize different aspects of our relationship to God. The shift from smaller to medium and larger sized churches in our society could mean that there will be fewer churches in the future, but those that are around may be equipped to offer different styled services.
