Music Monday 9.8.14

I’m starting a new thing. Each Monday, I’ll pick a song that I’m just really into at the moment. I’ll include a link to listen and talk a little about it. Here’s the first one:

“This I Believe (The Creed)” by Hillsong Worship

Sometimes contemporary worship gets a bad rap for not being as sincere as traditional worship music. Hymns are considered to be more “high church” with deeper theological grounding. Ben Fielding and Matt Crocker of Hillsong Worship answer that misconception with this powerful song. Its lyrics are based on the Apostle’s Creed and it’s meant to serve as a worship anthem for the modern church. It’s simplistic and at the same time profound. Many worship songs are oftentimes written to be a statement on a certain subject, an accompaniment to a specific topic within our faith. This song was written to be a statement OF our faith. It’s a collective agreement of what we believe as Christians, it’s the very foundation of our faith and it’s put to some excellent music.
