Is it Time to Change Music?

Is it Time to Change Music?


 This week on the podcast Dan O'Rourke asks Father James Mallon and Eric Myatt if it's time to change the music? Music ministry can have a polarizing effect on a parish. What sorts of instruments should be played and what songs should be sung can have a great impact and in this week's episode the team talks about when change is good, when change is not so good, and why.Have a listen.
  We believe that the power of the Holy Spirit is one of the three keys to parish renewal. This week on the podcast we dig deeper into this topic by asking; how do we know that we're being guided by God? How can we discern what God is calling us to do in a sea of personal and professional demands? Ron, Rob, and Father James walk us through their own processes for discerning and share with us some of the ways they've learned to be better spiritual listeners.
This week on the podcast we welcome back Gabriel and Chris from WorshipNOW. They discuss how we can meet parishes where they are with  music ministry and how their hymnal can make great music accessible to parishes in ways they've never even considered. Sometimes it's hard to know how to balance modern music with an understanding of the liturgy and WorshipNOW help bridge the gap. How can a hymnal be used as a tool for radical hospitality? Tune in for this incredible discussion on music in the Catholic Church.
This week Dan O'Rourke, Father James Mallon, and Eric Myatt are joined by Gabriel Wanous and Chris Nolin of WorshipNOW. WorshipNOW provide parishes with support in pursuing music that inspires parishioners to sing praise to God. We know that music can have a huge impact on lives and yet we often fail to push ourselves in music ministry. The team from WorshipNOW share their story and dive into how we can move from maintenance to mission in music. 
This is the question that Ron Huntley, Rob McDowell, and Father James Mallon seek to answer this week. Scripture is one of the most powerful tools that we have access to within our parishes and this week the team speaks into how to get people to recognize this gift. We discuss why reading Scripture is so important and some ways to get people more engaged in this conversation with Christ. Scripture has often been seen as inaccessible to some and this week the team works to dispel that myth. Whether you’re starting a study plan for the first time or looking for a new way to connect, this is going to be a great one to tune into.If you’re looking for a great way to introduce people to Jesus before you introduce them to Scripture, check out Unlocking Your Parish: Making Disciples, Raising Up Leaders With Alpha by Ron Huntley and Father James Mallon.
We're joined once again by Tanya Noye from Saint Benedict Parish to chat about why it's so hard to invite people to your church. Tanya opens up about some of the reasons that Catholics struggle with invitation and why it's so important. There are some incredible personal stories in this week's podcast including the story of Tanya's husband accepting an invitation from an unlikely source. If you believe that your church could get a little help with moving through the struggles of invitation, this episode has some great actionable advice.
This week on the podcast we're joined by Tanya Noye who works with Alpha and Engagement with Saint Benedict Parish for a discussion on evangelization. Tanya shares the story of how she fell away from the Church and why she returned. She shares with us the story of how Alpha has impacted her family's life and why she believes that invitation is so key to the future of the Catholic Church. This is a great conversation for ministry leads, pastors, and lay people who want to better understand the purpose of invitation, engagement, and evangelization.
