Unitarian Modern Worship: I Am Not Making This Up

Filed under: Christianity, Church, music, worship — Tags: , , , — paulthinkingoutloud @ 8:22 pm

Adam Walker, on his blog Pomomusings informs us about — and unless I’m misreading this, strongly recommends — a new album by Dana Decker & His Band of All Stars, titled When We Sing. (You can video preview some of the tracks here.)

For Adam, the issue seems to be one of, “Why should the evangelicals have all the good music?”   Apparently, there are not enough good bands and songwriters out there creating songs that the liberal wing of the church can sing with conviction.  (I apologize ahead of time if the word “conviction” doesn’t square with Unitarian Universalist theology.)  (Ditto the word ‘theology.’)

And so Pomomusings heralds the coming of Liberal Worship, complete with a link if you’d like to buy a copy.   Obviously, some of the dozen or so people who left a comment after the article aren’t so sure about this.

  1. Well, at least they are being up front about it. There are many bands and artists out there that we are supporting that simply don’t let us know what they believe at all. This way, knowing their beliefs up front, I can use discernment and decide not to contribute to the chaos. Laters.
