Monday, February 06, 2017 -- Jazz Psalms Project Renamed
The Jazz Psalms Project officially began in the summer of 2011. While practicing Lectio Divina, the ancient reflective practice of repetitive slow reading of Holy Scripture, I began to hear music from each of the psalms. As the songs were written, the reality of the eclectic nature and powerful influence of the music became increasingly clear. There were psalms that used latin grooves, hip-hop, pop, jazz and even country. Now the project proudly displays music from all over the world, a testimony that proclaims God's holy Word from the Book of Psalms to people of all cultures. Having reached this conclusion, we at Music Serving The Word Ministries felt the need to create a new name that appropriately addresses this project with a global focus. As a result, we have happily changed the name to Psalms Reborn and we look forward to new ways of introducing this music from the holy Book of Psalms to the world.
In July of 2016, I officially completed all 150 of the Psalms. They are now all published and posted at http://www.musicservingtheword.org
