Today’s meditation is simple: it’s good to help your friends, and my friends have developed a new website!
|Worship springing forth from local soil.|
Indigenousworship.com launches today--a website dedicated to encouraging songwriting in the local church. Why not check it out each day this week as John Mark McMillan discusses songwriting and worship?
One of the downsides to our mass media-drive age is a dreary sameness in cultural expressions--movies, music, and books all begin to merge into one pale hue. But the Kingdom of God should blossom forth into a million blooms, each flower distinctive to the soil that supports it: that’s indigenous worship.
From nation to nation, region to region, even city to city--God should be praised in the idiom of the local people. The book of Revelation celebrates people of every nation, tribe, and tongue--wouldn’t it be a shame if our locality had no songs to bring?
