Another month has flown by and here we are again with the latest edition of “Pop Goes the Gospel“. Each month I am amazed at the quality and quantity of posts I receive. I wish I could include every article submitted but this blog carnival rules only allow one submission per author and therefore I must pick only one to include. This month I was met with blog carnival submitter’s spam. I had one author submit about 30 links to articles and of course they were not fit for this forum and were promptly deleted and reported to blog carnival as spam. ANYWAY what remains, although small in number this month, are the articles that got past the editor in chief, me, and are presented here for your enrichment.
This edition is not large but it certainly is chock full of quality articles. So, drum roll please… On with the parade of posts.
This Month’s Feature Article
Tim King presents The Psychology of Worship Music posted at J. Timothy King’s Blog, Tim tackles a subject close to my heart and because of his well written article I chose to make him this month’s featured article. The Psychology of worship addresses why music, especially worship music, has an emotional effect on people who actively participate. I found the article well written. Tell us what you think.
NCSue presents Thoughts from the “in box” posted at IN HIM WE LIVE AND MOVE AND HAVE OUR BEING. NCSue acknowledges that an inbox can contain wisdom. Read this post which gives a new perspective to being YOKED with God.
In Church Life
Shannon Christman presents Generational Segregation posted at The Minority Thinker, saying, “Churches too often imitate the segmented marketing styles of the larger culture, with the result that we rarely get to interact with members of other generations.” Well said Shannon, and a well written post. The old adage goes something like opposites attract, well I am of the persuasion that like spirits attract. We have to work to reach outside our comfort zones. There are many blessing to be found outside our circles of influence if we are only willing to expand our inner circle.
andriel presents Yom Kippur – The Foreshadowing of Christ posted at ReturningKing.com, Everything you wanted to know about Yom Kippur but where too afraid to ask. Well andriel makes the complex simple. Check it out.
Rodney Sutton presents Why Be A Do-gooder? posted at Happy Hog Speaks!, Rodney is back with another fun piece. Why do good? Of course I like to say why not do good? In any case Rodney points out that what goes around comes around so you might as well start the circular motion by putting out some good things so that in the end good things come back to you. I think King Solomon said it best when he penned Cast your bread upon the waters, for you will find it after many days. Ecclesiastes 11:1
Angelawd presents Too many sides to this issue posted at angelawd. Oh tell me she didn’t go there? Oh but she did! Angelawd attempts to find reason in the debate over homosexual pastors now allowed to be ordained in the Lutheran church. She offers up many questions and is actively seeking an answer from God or like she said ‘wisdom from God”. Perhaps you may wish to add your thoughts to this topic. I am sure this article will cause many to opine. Just do so in a kind and loving manner.
That concludes this edition. Submit your blog article to the next edition of pop goes the gospel using our carnival submission form. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.
