Female Organists Playing During Lord's Supper
« on: January 13, 2006, 08:56:48 AM »
Things have gotten quite dull here, as we wait with great anticipation for the 'GCM Surprise,' so why don't we discuss whether it would be appropriate for women to play instrumental music during the Lord's Supper.

I'll go first.  I think it depends on the music.  If it was something composed by Bach or a hymn written by Isaac Watts, I'd have no problem with it.  However, I would object to any arrangement of a Bill Gaither or Steve Green work.

What do you think?

Would she have her head covered?

Does the church have a kitchen?

Is she barefoot and pregnant, wearing a burkah?

I'm OK with it as long as the song cannot be considered Contemporary Christian Music.
Suppose there were a physician who had such skill that people would not die, or even though they died would afterward live forever. Just think how the world would snow and rain money upon him! Because of the pressing crowd of rich men no one else could get near him. Now, here in Baptism there is brought free to every man's door just such a priceless medicine which swallows up death and saves the lives of all men.

I wonder what the Corinthians, Ephesians, and Colossians thought Paul would think about this issue?

I'm sure that they, too, thought CCM was pathetic.
BTW, what is the \"GCM surprise\" for which we wait?[/color]

I would say it would have to be behind a curtain like in the Wizard of Oz.

I bet it's a rousing instrumental-only rendition of Lee Greenwood's \"Proud to be an American\", played by a woman, using only her toes, on a hot pink Liberachi-esque organ.

Now wouldn't that be somthing....

You can check out the thread in the General Discussion forum, and add your own speculation.

I'm holding out for a GCM beverage koozie.

Theologically it would be fine, but organ music just doesn't agree with me.
He was despised and forsaken of men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; like one from whom men hide their face; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.  Surely our griefs He Himself bore, and our sorrows He carried; yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.  But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, and by His scourging we are healed.

It's the part about her playing with her toes that bugs me.
