She's still doing Joy of Music, in case you didn't know, or at least she was last year. It's all those overseas "musical journey of ..." features I enjoy most. I have about 60 episodes recorded, and it's nice to just pop in one of those tapes while I'm on the computer doing stuff. I only wish those shows were in Dolby Surround instead of mono! :( or at least they're mono on my tapes because TBN of course is mono.   VEAGUE wrote:   > Miss Bish was organist at Coral Ridge in the 80's.

(back) Subject: Re: Happy Clappy, 7-11 was Rednecksville From: Posthorn8@aol.com Date: Fri, 5 Mar 1999 09:14:43 EST   I was raised in the Assemblies of God Church. Back in the 70's and 80's we used a lot of the wonderful worship choruses by Gaither and many others....Here is how I look at the situation.....   The choruses we used touched us at a human life level....They were assuring, strengthening, and affirming. We also used many of the mainline hymns. These hymns and choruses allowed us to express our grief, joy, fear, pain, and hope in the context of our faith. Many times they were the only foot hold or handhold that kept us connected to God. Every time I sang a CCM chorus I felt like a blond valley girl. My singing "Hey God, you're an awesome dude" simply did not express any of my feelings, and did NOTHING to develop my character or further my relationship with God. I found them to be vapid, insipid, and vacuous.   As you know things in the evangelical church have become focused on defining people as "part of us" or pariah. To be "part of us" you must be Republican, middle class, antigay heterosexual, married, and antiabortion. (Among many others.) The music used in these environments reflect that. This is narrow music reflecting a narrow life experience. When mainline churches mistakenly try to transplant it to their own experience the transplant fails. The "old" choruses spoke to a broad life and faith experience and could easily be transplanted to any worship environment crossing denominational lines.   Years ago I decided to disassociate myself from the evangelical church because the shift in music styles heralded a shift in philosophy that disturbed me. I could see this narrowness coming to prominence with the introduction of Integrity music in the early 80's. (it's not integral, it's separatist). It's been downhill since then.   Even though I am organist for a R. C. church (and enjoy it very much) I will often sit and play the old songs on the organ here in the house. They are still a part of my personal worship experience. I wonder how far the pendulum will swing before it starts to come the other way?   Tim Schramm

Doesn't the Good Book have solutions for each and every one of life's situations? ;-)   Their much simpler problems of life are resolved in a much simpler reading of the Gospel, and this is reflected in their musical tastes.   As the saying goes, "Been there, done that!!"

And from what I see, very true.   After so many years of "contemporary" worship formats, a magazine recently pointed out that there was a renewed interest in liturgical settings -- as people were now looking for the "mystery" of faith and worship.   The evangelical and charismatic movements have removed much of the contemplation of the mysteries of faith out of Christian Life. They've tried to simplify everything, almost a dumbing down of faith. Now, THAT pendulum seems to be swinging back.   Perhaps some day it will rest in the center, and the church will be able to focus on the most important thing --God.   Dennis Goward

My church, LCMS, is using the green hymnal (Lutheran Book of Worship? I can never keep the 3 straight) and we had until recently chopped out parts of the first communion service (the only one we use) because it made the service longer and some of it was considered "unnecessary" - but we started to recieve complaints that there wasn't enough liturgy in the service. So last month we started to do the entire service - and what's amazing is that I don't think I've seen people happier with the way the service went. Go figure!   Justin Karch Organist, Holy Trinity LCMS Rome, GA

If church is not about God--getting to know and understand Him and our relationship to Him--so we can better learn how to love and appreciate one another, treat each other with compassion and be good stewards of the earth and the animals, than what real value can it possibly have?

And the most recent organist, Colin Something, left near the end of last year. I don't know who the organist is now. The new minister of music, John Wilson, went there from my conference here in New Jersey. I say "new", he's been there since July 1997. I too have deep admiration for her contribution to our art. So many folks have been drawn to organ music as a result of her work. Not to mention, watching her show, we get to visit beautiful cathedrals we might not otherwise see. Neil

Recently I heard that she was to go back to Coral Ridge one Sunday a month to do the service and a recital, or special production. She is busy with Allen, promoting the Renaissance model that has her name.   I have known her for about 20 years and admire her playing. Much of it is "top 40" but she can do quite well on the real classics. She gave a recital at my college many years ago and played a standard program. Did it well. People enjoyed it. Of course she looked different on the bench than I did - and that didn't hurt her cause.   JOHN
