Got it now.

Miles Davis, good stuff.
I grew up in a family that plays jazz. We jam on holidays, and partys.

My personal favorite is James Taylor.

You know if you listen closley, I think some "secular" musicians write some of their songs to God, they just don't make it so apparent. Some.

anyone saying that all church music sux should go there before making a general statement that is impossible to prove

Welcome To EvC
Siggy, I live in Denver and know the Scum Of The Earth church well.

I believe that the future of Urban Ministry and specifically youth oriented music will be a synthesis of Gothic/Hip Hop, but it may take off even further from there!

BTW Do you know Age Sandoval in Denver? He is a pioneer of Christian Rap/Hip Hop and has a Hip Hop church known as Urban Impact.

Christian Musical Performance
Hey on occasions (don't ask) I go to a local community church (derivative from New Life) and I get goosebumps when listening to the musical worship (performance). The music is very very good - I must remember to drop a little into the offering plate next time.

Re: Christian Musical Performance
sometimes sacred music is very beautiful and very moving. that's what it's meant for. i'm glad to see that many on the outside still enjoy it. i don't allow myself to anymore. it's a shame, really.
