Psalm 33 Follow up Apologies for the delay in last episode. I had some major technical issues as my iPad stopped exporting audio (and I had to export the audio manually by playing the audio from my iPad into another computer which lowered the audio quality as well). We are not transitioning to a triweekly podcast, but there may be some delays as I …
 
Jon Foreman wrote a song based on Psalm 51 that is beautiful. The instrumentation is very somber, and while it has a lot of moving pieces, functions in a way that really points to the words being sung. The Modern Post covered this song and while it is very excellent musically, the focus is much more on the instrumentation and vocal style than the a…

Psalm Psalm 32 Ice Breaker Review of Jon Foreman’s Departures album I would classify this album as a Type 2.5 album. Many of the songs are solidly Type 3, but there are Type 2 and at least one song I would classify as a “personal” Type 1 (not meant for congregational worship) Lament: Jesus I Have My Doubts. Before we can fully dive into that song, …

Psalm 29 Follow up Grant was talking with one of the guys over at Presbycast about our show and he said that he was wary about using the Psalms as a model. I have been thinking about what he said and I want to make a clarification. I talked about how the Psalms are Scripture, poetry, and lyrics; but we can only use the Psalms as a model as far as p…

Psalm 27 Psalms as Scripture When translating the Psalms as Scripture, there are two major schools of thought: word for word translation or line by line translation. Generally speaking, word for word translation is a better tactic for ensuring what we have is what was intended. Line by line translations tend to misinterpret plays on words or double…
 
Psalm Psalm 26 Main Topic We wrap up our discussion of the Psalm model with three concepts: Petition, Supplication, and Call to Action.

Psalm 6 Psalm 17:6 Psalm 102:2 Psal…

Psalm 18 Follow Up Grant had asked Bryan last episode why 150 songs was not enough. Bryan had actually said that 150 songs were enough. Either way, he never answered the question.

We start out with a new segment before diving into discussing the news about the frontman for Hawk Nelson leaving his idea of Christianity and the Supreme Court’s recent decision to continue restricting churches from meeting because they see them as entertainment.

Psalm 14 But first Gilead Sciences – Open Letter from Chairman and CEO Daniel O’Day. The Meat of It A church pays money, called royalties, to a song’s writer(s) through their CCLI license. The “Royalties Argument” says that a song’s author matters, despite a song’s content, as long as the song is not in the public domain. By singing Bethel, Elevati…

This is part 1 of a two part study of 12 Type 1 songs (that is usually sung in worship) that really ought to be more Type 2 (that is songs with Christian themes, but not suitable for worship).

Top 10 Christian Songs Streamed on Spotify (source: Disrn) “You Say” – Lauren Daigle “Reckless L…
 
Psalm 9 Songs, generally, should say the word “sin.” If it doesn’t it should at least talk about sin in Biblical terminology. If you don’t acknowledge sin, it leaves out the reason for the gospel. While more songs should talk about sin, not every one needs to. Without acknowledging sin, we cannot worship. Quote from C.J. Mahaney (who quotes John St…
