Music for Worship

For many people, music is a source of experiences of the sacred. That makes the choice of music for worship services both important and challenging.  Fortunately, new music for worship is constantly showing up, from all over the world!  For the next few weeks we’ll be meeting some of the composers and lyricists who are giving expression to progressive Christianity through their music.  This week, we have samples from Fran McKendree, a composer, singer and workshop leader from North Carolina; Bill Wallace, a retired Methodist pastor from New Zealand who has a whole collection of new children’s songs (“Sing Young, Sing Joyfully”) that will get posted here over the coming weeks; and David Stevenson from England, with a collection of new lyrics to known hymn tunes.
