There's power in a story. There's something that transcends in the history of a given work (song, poem, film, etc). Unfortunately, much art is never looked into, to find its back story.
Why do certain piece stand out for hundreds of years?
Better yet, why do we sing or recite them week in and out, without knowing and appreciating the story?
That got me thinking...My church is launching a new service in 2 weeks called S2, and its design is to be a storytellers service - telling and exploring the rich history behind the best worship tunes of our age.
I'm looking forward to it!
