In a forthcoming post, I’ll share the first of several expositions on the theology of the songs we sing…the good, the bad and the ugly.
In my first post, a post that’s been marinating for over a year and a post I wrote as a guest author today over at CoreyTrevathan.com, the blog of my friend and colleauge and preacher for the Riverside Church, Corey Trevathan, I talk about the bad theology we find in many of our songs about heaven…many of which stem from a warped understanding of the Kingdom of God. (
But I also talk about a few good ones, songs that serve as models for how we should shape the theology we sing. A great hymn that I didn’t mention by is “Our Father in Heaven” by my friend and accomplished composer, worship practitioner, all around brilliant musician Eric Wyse. This video was captured by another friend (Brandon Scott Thomas) last evening at the convocation of the Webber Institute for Worship Studies down in Florida.
