As Phyllis Tickle wrote, “It is always the music that carries the message of spiritual and social transformation most powerfully.”
Yet it seems like a lot of praise and worship lyrics don’t quite work for theologically progressive congregations, which leads us to ask:
- What is progressive Christian worship music?
- Why do we need it?
- Where can we find it?
Come sing, listen, and learn about progressive theology, inclusive language, and the messages of the songs we sing in the context of worship.
This workshop is perfect for clergy, church musicians, aspiring progressive Christian songwriters, those who help design worship services, and anyone who is passionate about the role of community song in spiritual formation.
Music is such a part of the spiritual and human experience. That’s why we are thrilled that the Convergence Music Project, along with so many talented musicians and worship artists, are coming together to create this experience. Join Music Revolution coordinator Bryan Sirchio, Mark Miller and more as we sing, listen, and learn about progressive theology, inclusive language, and the messages of the songs we sing in the context of worship!
The Convergence Music Project (CMP) is a new online source of music for worship that has been theologically curated so that all the songs on the site reflect a sensitivity to inclusive language and progressive theology.
