I like to put music on to help my children go to sleep. This is my "Sleepy Time" playlist that I use most nights. Any recommendations for additions? https://itunes.apple.com/us/playlist/sleepytime/pl.u-Xq0BsRprM9
I'm loving this Liturgists instance but I think the only way that I can convince my Twitter-addled brain to check in here frequently is to find multiple communities to join so that my Home feed contains a sizable amount of relevant content.
Anybody come across any other vibrant communities out there?
Kia Ora everyone!
If your a kiwi/Aussie and loving this space #ANZLiturgist could be a space to chat and share for this if us who might be out of the USA loop on things but still love to keep up and talk about issues, books, and the podcasts things this could be something cool!
Any other current/former worship musicians still playing in church? It’s a far out trip, right? It’s not so bad until sermon time. I can interpret a lot of the song lyrics in a way that I can still feel good singing along. But when the preaching starts.. that’s when it gets awkward for me. #worshipmusician
My brother and I were talking two nights ago and I wanted to share the takeaway from our conversation: We're tired of pastors over emphasizing Bible reading. It often becomes the only application point in sermons. What if we emphasized love in action instead? What if we used scripture as a tool to educate us, motivate us and shape us toward living out love? But most sermons are like a friend encouraging us to read "How to go on a date" over and over and never actually... Go on a date.
As we get ready to bid farewell to the band Gungor, this is my #GungorStory
Before I met @vishnu, my entire understanding of Gungor was the song Beautiful Things, which I new because I'd played it at church. I remember thinking the song was too textured to be a Christian song, and the lyrics were thoughtful and stuck with me.
After I met @vishnu, I went through the catalog and found it compelling, but it didn't fit the reference frame I was in with the Divine. That changed with I Am Mountain and Vapor in a big way--that's the first record that made me feel like there was music for people like me.
That continued (and intensified) with One Wild Life--which is basically a psychedelic trip transformed into music.
