Worship Leading Skills: Logos, Ethos, Pathos

Bob KauflinI’m trying something new. It may or may not catch on, but seeing as I lead worship leaders, I want to always have fresh resources for them to help them grow, learn, and add practical skills to their toolboxes. So I’m going to start creating a library of stuff I find around the web – stuff that I think is important for leading and developing a worship culture.

Bob Kauflin wrote this post titled “What I Learned from Aristotle about Leading Congregational Worship”:

Specifically, I haven’t learned anything from Aristotle (384 BC – 322 BC) about leading congregational worship that I didn’t learn first in Scripture.

But in his day, Aristotle sought to help speakers be more persuasive by identifying three crucial areas to keep in mind. He called them logos, ethos, and pathos.

Bob goes on to talk about how important these three elements are to leading a congregation in worship. There’s some really good advice and conversation starters in the article.
