I struggled to decide where to share this paper but I put it here. I was going to offer it up for discussion in the CDZ for no other reason than to keep it clean, but really I don't want to debate it. Pure discussion is what I'm looking for here. The other day buttercup made a thread, likely to stimulate further discussion and I totally missed the whole point on the op. She had posted a Christian outreach song and offered some commentary, it was global in nature, which regretfully I forgot. What she posted was really an extention, more likely a demonstration of what the paper I'm going to link is all about. I complained about the song instead of even caring about the topic. And I was kind of jerk in tenor in my posts, some of you might know how I get like that sometimes in my posts, I'll work on it. Really. Anyway the thread disappeared, I asked her why, and she said she asked to have it deleted. Dust your feet kind of thing, too, know what I mean? Compound that with the snarky, totally off topic tenor in my keystrokes, I don't blame her if she kicked the dust in my face on the way outta the thread. It was very insensitive of me. Later I mentioned I felt bad about it to ding, he agreed I was a jerk, except he didn't say it. One might even consider it a moment of fellowship if he takes a moment to ponder it. He took the high road and left me with some good avice about what the right thing to do might be. Buttercup has made it her mission to travel the world in discipleship for The Good Lord. Way out of my league, I shouldn't have even opened my mouth in the first place. Not to be offered as an excuse, but only as a passing blurb is that I'm only a man and we make mistakes. The upside is the learning experience, I suppose, and the realization that as men we don't really understand the mistakes we make. So. ding, thank you. Buttercup, I'm sorry. I'll try to continue the discussion, it's as close as I recall the intention of her thread was. The Impact of Global Christian Music in Worship Thoughts? It's not my place to lead disussion here, I'm what you'd call a new Christian. K? But I do hope the discussion may continue fruitfully.
