« offertory hymns for U2charists | Main

May 20, 2008


As I've said before, there are lots of popular and cult (not occult -- I mean artists with a particular and strong but not huge following) artists besides U2 who have written music in rock, blues, punk, country, soul, and other genres that work very well in services of worship.

Courtesy of songs for the journey, here's a perfect example: a Nick CAVEspers -- playlist of songs by Nick Cave (whose work I admire tremendously) for worship. So check it out:

The Nick CAVEspers.

Hi there: I have enjoyed your lectionary blog for a bit and loved your articles in Get Up Off Your Knees, too. Just a note to say that I've been working in this vein for about 10 years, too - both with Good Friday liturgies mixing scripture/prayer/contemporary music as well as Sunday morning worship - so... many thanks. You might enjoy my blog: http://rj-whenlovecomestotown.blogspot.com/
I look forward to checking in with you more now that I am pastor of a church in Pittsfield. Blessings.

Thanks so much for your comment. I think you make a great point in saying that the real heart of getting to know people is about evangelizing, not about proselytizing.

It's our hope that the whole body of Christ will work together and get to know people to expand the Kingdom.

Thanks and God Bless!
