Worship aNew

Credit where credit is due

Along with all the amazing possibilities inherent in the world wide web, come new responsibilities and issues. The ease with which expressions and resources can now be shared must be matched by diligence in the recognition and support of those who created them in the first place.

To God be the glory

In the context of a website celebrating worship, this should be an easy and natural attitude. When the focus is on God and the worth ascribed to Him throughout ages and places, then we ourselves give God more glory by attributing songs and images and words to many, rather than to no one in particular or, by implication, ourselves. Worshipping 'anew' - the act of adding our hands and voices to those of others - compounds the worship accrued to God.

At the very least, each item or group of items should be accompanied by basic information about the items and their creator. This will typically be shown on the right side panel in a box as shown below, and will include, where applicable, the following:

  • Artist/Composer/Author: The name of the work's creator.
  • Church: The church fellowship (if any) for which the work was originally created.
  • Year: The year of the work's creation.
  • Medium: The materials with which the work is constructed.
  • Size: The size of the work.
