I’ve decided again, just today, that the raw artist voices in the emerging church world must continue to speak in language that is not necessarily familiar, nor easily accessible.
I will go on record – I am incredibly grateful for the accessibility of much of today’s Christian music – it breathes life into my wife and children powerfully, beautifully and vitally, in the face of many challenges.
I will also go on record saying that the Christian music industry is struggling to find a way to elevate important voices that will not make them big bucks.
Both/And is the way of the future. Retellings of the Human Story that bring wholeness and insight must be shared. I suppose I’m projecting again; speaking to myself as much as anyone else. My musical work, now running in the background and changing over the years, in the face of a season holding no recordings and no one in line to make them, is to write toward this present, and this future.
