I’m a bloke and I was just reading an insightful and thought provoking post by Dan (as recommended by Dave) about music and men. We’re doing some thinking about how to do music at North Rocks @ Night. One of the things I’m thinking about is singing up the front. Here’s some of what Dan wrote:
Another factor is who you stick up the front. If all your music leaders are girls then why are all the backing singers girls? At nitechurch we have 3 guy band leaders and a couple of guy backing vocalists. I’m always trying to encourage our guys to take up the mic. It gives example to guys in the congregation.
What songs are you singing? Are you always singing about Jesus being beautiful or lovely or ‘darling’. These are fine to sing at times but what is your diet? So many christian songs are girly. Don’t buy into it wholesale. Sing about Christ’s victory, his strength, our mission, His leadership. Guys get that stuff. We get the other stuff too and I’m being stereotypical but I’m just saying be careful.
Read the rest here. Well worth it.
Something else blokey is this – the new Indiana Jones teaser!
I love the quote “You’re a teacher?” “Part time”
