Away from Campus a Long Time

“It’s been such a long time since I was here as a student that all my old professors have turned into buildings.”

— Don Wyrtsen at yesterday’s Dallas Seminary Chapel

Don then demonstrated five stages of worship music in the American church, starting with the “New England School” and ending with the current trend of “Celebration” music.  Before I heard his presentation, it seemed to me that we need to choose between “contemporary” or “traditional.”  After his presentation, I agree that the five different styles are simply colors on an artist’s palate, to be used appropriately to fulfill the Psalmist’s exhortation to “sing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs.”  It was also a delight to see a gifted man share his gift with a spirit of fun and substance.
