Tonight we talked about our theology of music. In particular, we discussed how, in a world whose theology has seemed to have “moved on,” how can we still enjoy the old gospel songs that mean so much to us? We looked at a number of these gospel greats and explored how we can still see them as having great meaning and being a source of hope. We learned that we can still gain strength from these songs regardless of whether our eschatology points to a better place beyond the clouds or right here in this life.
We listened to and sang a number of the greats together. We were also treated with a pleasant surprise when our friend Larry showed up and played a great bluesy version of Amazing Grace. Thanks Larry!
