Thank you for this personal study. Although you graciously said that if one does not have the time to read the entire piece, they may simply refere to the summation; I believe such is not the case here. Because we live in a culture that thrives on speed and instant gratification, we tend not to take the time to digest things that would beneficial to our growth or understanding. That is how I view what you have written here. To not take the time to read the entire article would be a disservice to our intelligence and our knowledge of church history. The points you have beautifully made are the same points I have argued for years – even decades. Thank you for acknowledging the development of music in the church. We have come a long way slowly, and we have a long way ahead of us… at least until Jesus comes again.
