Fun with Church Music

If you abide in Me and My word abides in you, then you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.

Brief announcement: I finally got everything submitted to CreateSpace to bring out a paperback edition of Heaven Sent. I should be announcing its availability in the next week or two.

The Sunday School Class I lead—uh oh, my church calls them Adult Bible Fellowships—is primarily comprised of people my age and older. There’s a lot about that that’s good, but there are disadvantages, too.

For instance, we always have to have any class fellowship activities in the daytime, because many of our members don’t like to get out at night. And when we lose members, more often than not it involves a funeral. Even if not, there always seem to be some to visit in the hospital.

Another disadvantage of dealing with our age group is that most of our people don’t appreciate contemporary Christian music. If it wasn’t in a standard hymnal at least fifty years ago, it couldn’t be worth singing. We’ve actually had people leave our church because they didn’t like the praise songs.

Recently, I came across a video that seemed to capture the essence of this problem. Listen in as Rob Mills, a music minister and Christian singer, sheds light on this serious subject.

When I emailed our class teacher the link to this video, he told me about another video he’d recently seen that he thought our class would get a kick out of hearing, so we decided to play both of them. The second one is by Andy Andrews, an author and public speaker.

Hope you enjoyed these videos. I loved them so much I just had to share them with you. Do you know some links to funny Christian videos?

Have a New Testament passage or concept you’d like to see discussed here? Maybe something you’ve never quite understood. I’d love to hear from you about that, too. I’ll try my best to explain it.
