I know. . . It’s been a long time since I’ve posted a blog. Life has been busy.
Can I ask your help with something? Many of you probably know already, but in just a couple of months Istoria Church will have its first service. God has been soooo good and we’re excited to see what will happen!!
Istoria is Greek for story and we believe everyone has one. At Istoria we want to share the “big narrative” through various avenues. One of those story-telling avenues is through song! Music is a very important part of our lives – and this is evident through our obsession with song. Just check out the multi-million dollar music business!
So, she asked my wife what kind of music we will use at IC and the answer is simple . . . music that shares a story. Whether it is worship, hymns, pop, classical, rock-n-roll, etc. – if it helps tell the story being shared about the Good News – we might just use it.
She asked if she could share a couple songs we might could use – songs on her play list that share a part of our life story. The Answer: I’d love it!!! And that’s the reason for this blog post.
We relate to our favorite tunes and the stories they tell. So, what songs have helped you on your journey? What songs could I tag on to a sermon or add to our service that we all could relate too? (Maybe it shares life’s good times or bad times or the daily or relationship struggles we all deal with.)
Respond to this post and help me start an IC play list of “story” songs. Visit us at Istoria one day and you might just hear your suggested tune and once again be affected by the life stories in song!
By the way, don’t respond yet . . . but I’ll soon be asking for input about “life story” novels, poems, movies, music videos, etc.!!!
