Here’s a CBC Radio clip worth its salt…and light. Pastor Jonathan Gonyou does a whirlwind tour of unlikely gospel tunes and unlikely-er gospel recording artists that will surprise and perhaps astound.
It will be easy for the tightly-knit among us to pass some of these artists off as dabblers or provocateurs sent to bedevil the true flock, or at least leave us scratching noggins.
But what Jonathan G. finds here, by overturning a wide swath of pop-stones in his quest for anything and everything redeemable–is, more often than not, genuine human yearning and longing for a meaning that transcends culture’s calcified boundaries and offers salvation.
Well done Pastor Gonyou. Link to clip.
