"Liquid Church is using songs like Adele's 'Rolling in the Deep' and Bruno Mars' 'Grenade' as part of its 'Pop God' sermon series"Secular Music in the Church Endangers Sacredness?
Wait, I have a file folder for this somewhere...
...filled with articles like "robber leaves his own wallet at crime scene," "vacationing family forgets child at rest stop," and "Chicago official arrested for corruption."
Yup, file this under "no longer counts as news."
But I think they should get a few bonus points for creativity. Instead of "Martin Luther" adapting barroom songs for church music, now it's "Jonathan Edwards."
...Looks like they just took a note from the playbook of Perry Noble of Newspring fame-- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ppAUR-UEOnM --who likely took it from the playbook of someone else. Gotta love these guys! Cutting edge wannabes for the rest of the wannabes to chase after.
Heh. John Hardin, quoted in the article, was my men's small group leader for a time. Great guy. You might like his interview with Mark Dever on business practices in the church.
