southern gospel

i'm not a huge fan of southern gospel music. it just doesn't "float my boat." so i wasn't real thrilled when i found out that we had a southern gospel group singing for the largest part of our worship service today. in a perfect world i would at this point tell you that the group was so good that they changed my mind about southern gospel. they weren't that good and it didn't change my mind. still i enjoyed being able to tell that other people were connecting to GOD through the music that was a part of our worship. that was enough for me. i was able to worship GOD through the fact that they were able to connect with GOD through the southern gospel in our service. i love the fact that we have a diverse GOD.

of course, it would be perfectly okay with me if we never had another southern gospel group lead any of our services. ;)

  • okay - first you trash the swaggerts, then you purposely leave them out of your podcasts, and now this is the final straw...

  • Okay - that wasn't an anonymous comment... I left it. ha hah...

    Just couldn't let the humor pass.

    But your post brings up a very critical and problematic situation.

    If I were sitting in a southern gospel concert and had a gun with only one bullet...who would I shoot?

    Myself? The ultimate in selfishness. Sure, I would be done with the misery of listening but what about all the other poor souls there?

    The Singer? That would bring the most relief but bad taste is not necessarily to kill over...

    deep thoughts...what do you think?
