A few blessed people might be able to return to church this week, but for the rest of us e-worship continues to be our Sunday reality. Locked in and on our own, what place does singing have?
The slow winding back of COVID-19 restrictions means that small groups of Christians are able to gather for worship once again. Yet for the majority of the world, church services will continue to a remote affair for several months to come.
Megan Powell du Toit and Michael Jensen consider what worship looks like behind closed doors, and in particular what role singing plays.
Is making music to God an essential part of relating to Him? Or a cultural add-on that’s nice but not necessary? Musician and worship lecturer Tanya Riches joins Michael and Meagan to puzzle out the truth, with all due respect.

Less aggro, more conversation.

There’s plenty of things they disagree on: free will, feminism, where you should send your kids to school and what type of church you should go to. But there are also plenty of other things that they have in common. They want to talk about all these things with conviction. But they also want the conversation to be constructive. Tune in to find out if that’s possible.
