Feeding the soul
New Scottish Arts, supporting Keith and Kristyn Getty and Stuart Townend on their Celtic Islands tour. Although the accompaniments demanded lots of focus and energy, I found myself overcome with the passion of the music and with the poignancy of the lyrics being shared as these amazingly talented hymn writers and artists performed. These hymns get right to the heart of contemporary faith. What a generous and effective ministry. I wondered if, back in their day, Moody and Sankey had a similar effect on their contemporaries. There is such power in sharing the gospel through music.
