I just had a great couple of days showing international worship leader Graham Kendrick, with Mark and Andy from Furious Records around the island. They where here doing a photo shoot for Graham's new album.
Back in the 70's and 80's Graham wrote "Shine Jesus Shine" and host of other tracks. He is still a prolific song writer and has had wonderful opportunities to lead worship all over the world. His most fascinating place for me was the Gobi Desert in Mongolia!
I chatted with Graham about dance music and asked if he felt it could be used in a worship context, he made a very interesting observation. Most worship songs including the Psalms communicate truth.
Can dance music communicate truth?
I know it can, but it did make me think that using forms of electronic music in worship, has a way to go.
It was really great to get around the island and reconnect with the beauty of this place. We have flamingos down by the salt flats, they stop off en route to Africa, Went to some great white washed churches, watched the sun rise and set. A really excellent couple of days.
By the way I have been told by someone that I always get my "where" and "were" mixed up, sorry if this has offended you gramatically, I had a difficult childhood.....
