Christian Music, ‘The Lighthouse’

Suggested by Erlene, here’s John Starnes singing The Lighthouse.

What’s the difference between “Christian music” and a hymn? I think it’s only that hymns are in a hymnal and “Christian music” isn’t.

And I wonder how many of our beloved classic hymns would make it into the hymnals, if they were written nowadays.

  1. The old hymns TEACH, about the gospel, the character of God, basic doctrine and principles. Much of Christian music is centered around praise (which is good of course ) and emotion. Christian music also relates to the present culture.

  2. Thank you, Lee, and thank you too, Erlene. I’ve never heard this one.

    Lee, I’m so glad you’ve provided a map of the whole area. Some of the names of the people and their tribes are quite inventive – and hard to pronounce lol. I’m also very glad I started at the beginning – I would’ve missed so much! Just getting into The Thunder King and enjoying the whole story immensely!

    1. Don’t forget those much-needed amazon customer reviews–even if you’ve only got time for a sentence or two.

      Sometime next week “The Thunder King” will be fantasy/Christian fiction as it ought to be, no more Labor & Industrial Relations.

  3. Thank you posting again. Senior moment- I forgot it had been on before.
    This one brings tears every time I hear it.
