Question and Amen, that is.
In this episode, Brandon takes congregants' questions, some as they are texted from the audience.
The Amen Series Q&A - Sunday, December 2nd, 2012 - 9:15 AM from Keystone Church on Vimeo.
Awhile back, the Dew posed the question: "Why does Keystone occasionally include secular music in its services?" Brandon answers the question here, stating that this church doesn't have walls to keep the popular culture out, and certainly doesn't try to keep the sacred, the good news, in. If a song is deemed to have relevance to a topic, even a song that's spiritually 'flawed', the worship & praise team will work to 'redeem' the song. Supposedly, there was much staff discussion about Drop It Like It's Hot (apparently a Snoop Dogg ditty) - the title of a recent series. The lyrics were deemed un-redeemable (I wouldn't know...), but the bass/beat was kept, in the hope that when audience members next heard it, they would associate a positive, not negative, message with it.
BTW, my 'street' name is Donn Dogg. (Like 52 year old white dudes have 'street' names...)
