Galileo Church

Quirky church for spiritual refugees. Who would Jesus love?

Our missional priorities:
1. We do justice for LGBTQ+ humans.
2. We do kindness for people with mental illness and in emotional distress, and celebrate neurodiversity.
3. We do beauty for our God-Who-Is-Beautiful.
4. We do real relationship, no bullshit, ever.

ON MUSIC, SIX MARKS, AND CANVAS OF SKY

Originally posted elsewhere, June 12, 2014.

Two questions: How do we (pastors, worship planners, worshipers) evaluate music for communal worship, especially as we seek to expand our musical canon beyond the hymnals of the traditional church? And how do I know if the album our worship leader just released is any good?

Using Bryan Sirchio's The 6 Marks of Progressive Christian Worship Music, I evaluate Paul Demer's album Canvas of Sky. In about 3 pages. Take a look.
