We’re in cahoots

As fate would have it the TGC Worship blog is running a 3-part series that hits similar notes from this blog’s previous post. The series is primarily directed to song writers but the posts are good reading for anyone. Note especially the leading quote from Matt Papa in pt 2 & the list of artists & music in pt 3.

When the Power of Scripture Meets the Power of Music (pt 1)

How to Write a Song from Scripture (pt 2)
