Volume 17, Issue 3:

Play the Blues


Thema: A Case of the Blues

Douglas Wilson puts it in the key of G.

"Christians are not to take anything in without careful examination, prayer, debate and discussion. There is no exception for the blues. I would submit that the blues contain much of value for us, and we should receive that which has value gladly and with discrimination. The early fathers encouraged us to take gold from the Egyptians, which would of course include gold from their city of Memphis. I simply want to include our Memphis as well."
