Leading Songs or Leading Worship?

One of the things that I have longed believed and tried to pass on to others is that being a worship leader is more than just getting up and singing songs. Much more. I ran across this video on The Worship Community of an interview done with worship leader/artist Aaron Keyes. In it, while talking about the current state of “worship”, the question is asked, “Are we really worshiping?” Check it out.

I have to say that the following line really resonated with me: “We’ve got to do more than lead song – we’ve got to lead people.”

What do you say?
