Christian music musings. The Gospel Music Association handed out its version of the Grammys, the Dove Awards, last night. How nice that we have our very own ghettoized awards ceremony, complete with Christian celebrities to host them. Anyway, surfing around brought me to this article about the state of so-called contemporary Christian music. I found this quote quite interesting:

It's becoming clear that most non-Christians will be no more attracted to a genre called 'Christian Music' than Christians would be attracted to a genre called 'Buddhist Music.' By ditching the label Buddhist Music, prominent Buddhists like Duncan Sheik have won a hearing among non-Buddhists for their music and their ideas. Christians who won't abandon the label 'Christian music,' even when doing so will bring this music and its lyrical content to more non-believers, are making a serious and critical mistake.

And then I saw some relevant links on Karen Ward's blog.
An invite. I'd like to pass along an invitation to all to subscribe to an email newsletter I send out on the topic of evangelism on the Internet. You can read more about it here. I'm about to upload the latest issue.
