“I want to sing again”
Via a link that was a making the rounds on Facebook recently: a copious evisceration of all that grates and benumbs about congregational P&W music. From a list of the main features of these songs that offend the writer:
3. They repeat. And repeat. And repeat. And repeat. And rep — all right. See what I mean? Really, really annoying. Really. The first time we sang the simplistic ditty, I could tolerate it though I thought the infinite God of all creation deserved better. By the fifth time, I was hearing echoes of Jesus warning about vain repetitions. But once you went softer and slowed it down on the seventh time, it really began to resonate with my soul.
Please. Stop. Now.
Full thing is here. Of course, taking down today’s off-the-rack P&W music in most evangelical churches is admittedly a fish-in-a-barrel kinda activity, but that shouldn’t keep us from enjoying a good rant now and again.Email this Post
