    Music In Worship

    • 1892 Words
    • 8 Pages

    Latin, typically by a priest or clergyman, and included very few, if not any, instrumental accompaniment. As a result, music was seen as incredibly sacred, having spiritual power that should be respect and thus sung only by high figures of the church, creating a disconnect between congregational participation and the church. However, during the Protestant Reformation, music’s role in worship began to shift dramatically. Although music was still viewed as sacred and to still contain immense spiritual power, music vocal point shifted and began to be seen as more interactive, expressive, and even to contain more worldly, or secular, components. By incorporating more of the congregation in singing, using more popular melodies to accompany the hymns, as well as using more instrumentals, worship music became increasingly inclusive, using more “ordinary people” and “simple plainsong” within the church services (Bethke…

    There are several other short passages that support the idea that the relationship between Okonkwo and Nwoye has deteriorated. Okonkwo was a typical man in the tribe. He often asked himself how he ended up with a son like Nwoye. “Okonkwo’s first son, Nwoye, was then twelve years old but was already causing his father great anxiety for his incipient laziness. At any rate, that was how it looked to his father, and he sought to correct him by constant nagging and beating ( 13-14).” Okonkwo…

    Garlock in the importance of congregational singing is, “it solidifies and teaches spiritual truth.” The apostle Paul in Colossians 3:16 confirms this; “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.” Aligning with this verse, Dr. Garlock presents a quote from Robert Shaw, “The basic premise of music is communication…expressible best by music or possibly even…

    Mary Sidney’s Psalms 58 and the Psalms 58 found in the Coverdale Bible share a remarkable amount of similarities when it comes to the text itself. However, despite it’s similarities, both text split in the meaning and ideas that stem from it. With Sidney, one sees a darker, robust imagery, while, with the text in Coverdale, the reader gets the sense of elevation and language that is not common to the general population.

    On the Shays' Rebellion Website, I thought it was very interesting to find that ministers in New England churches believed that the quality of singing by their congregations was not good enough. Today singing is considered a way of expressing one's joy about God's love, and all noise is considered joyful. It seems that the New England churches were worrying more about their image than people having the freedom to express their joy. I really like the Architectural Style Guide because I was able…

    • 2 Pages

    I have decided to pick “this little light of mine” and “stand by me” I know they both relate because they’re both gospels. I picked this little light of mine because I grew up listening to this song and always liked it. I can relate because I know no matter what I gave in life I got to shine.

    The Logos Hymn

    • 1329 Words
    • 6 Pages

    The Logos Hymn Both Matthew and Luke contain descriptions of the birth of Jesus unlike the Gospels of Mark and John. This difference may be a result of the special Luke and special Matthew sources. Instead of the Christmas story, the Gospel of John replaces the story of Jesus’s birth with the Logos hymn not only to create a universal text, but also to emphasize the glory of Jesus as the continuous creator that allows us to accept unending life. The Logos hymn forms the Gospel into a universal…
