Adam Dolhanyk follows up on our recent discussion of secular music in church. We tackled the licensing aspects, but Adam dives into the questions of why and how we should or could incorporate secular music into our services. He writes:
More and more churches are playing “secular music” in their services. It’s happening both with the live band on stage, and in the background music. What was once unthinkable to many is now a common place in churches all across the Western World. What’s going on? Why is this happening? Should we be worried or is it no big deal?
From there, Adam goes into a pretty exhaustive discussion of the topic, including cultural issues and the sometimes blurry line between the secular and the sacred.
