Church service

Last one from Wes Pitter, a praise band. I suppose some non-Christian readers of this blog may be unaware of this, but in the past twenty years there has been a real movement, especially in non-denominational Christian churches but in other denominations as well, away from some of the more traditional hymns played on organ and piano, to more modern (pop, rock) music played on guitars, drums, etc. If you've never read this, there's a hilarious story comparing hymns and praise songs in an agricultural setting. As someone who both loves the old hymns and also played bass in a praise band, I laughed quite a bit the first time I read that. BTW, Wes does go on to illustrate the whole church service - follow the link and read his descriptions.
