A Disclaimer on my Last Post

When I sat down to write a post about ‘boycotting’ CCM (Christian Contemporary Music) I didn’t think it would quickly become my number one post of all time (only a few friends, neighbors and co-conspirators usually read this). I wrote this at the bequest of a friend, to do a two-part series, the first giving 10 reasons to boycott CCM, the second highlighting artists worth breaking your boycott for. So please read the first post as a broad stroke criticism which is overly general. If you tell me that I am not being fair, I will answer you with one word: yep.

So things you do need to know: I listen Christian artists (though not exclusively), I appreciate the creativity, musicianship and quality of many and I am not really calling for boycott. What I am hoping, is that the previous post makes you think about what Christian music is, what it says and where it can be improved (in general).

So as originally planned, I will wait until next Tuesday for my follow up post. In the meantime, feel free to continue to point me to quality Christian musicians because the heart of my criticisms are this: I long to hear songs that cause my heart to sing of all that Christ has done and is doing in the world. In the meantime, I will resume my regular posting about faith and life, ministry, books, and my theological musings. I love that you found my blog and have engaged me in conversation on some of these things. I’m an extrovert, so love it when people talk back at me, so sit back and relax and lets talk a minute.

  1. Whatever, your post was informative. I never knew that Jaci Velasquez became an actress!

    And ditto on Webb and Garrels πŸ˜‰

  2. I’ll bet you’ve heard of these before, but in case not, check out:
    Derek Webb, Josh Garrels, Nina Landis, and Gungor. They’re some of my faves lately. πŸ™‚
