Do you miss singing the good old hymns of yesterday? Does your church primarily use “Top 40” contemporary Christian music in it’s services? Does your church use “7-11 songs”, i.e. where a congregation is enticed to sing the same seven words repetively, for what seems like eleven times in a row? Many churches in Anchorage use all of these forms of music in worship, wearing out the worshiper. It’s no wonder so many churches have praise bands, as these are the only ones seemingly able to keep up these musical worship forms. Look around during a service, and you’ll see what I mean.
Tomorrow, you have an opportunity to sing those good old hymns, at a great tempo, and associate with good Christian folks. It’s called Beer and Hymns and the action starts at 6:00 p.m. at Mo’s O’Brady’s Restaurant in the Huffman Business Plaza next to Carr’s. I’d get there early as tables go fast, and people tend to save seats for those who’ve not yet arrives. There is no admission, but you’ll have an opportunity to give to Lutheran Social Services of Alaska to be used for their many great community services, including a Food Pantry.
