Those of you who have followed my myspace blog will have heard me advocate the use of ‘secular’ songs in an act of worship.  It comes from a piece of research I did for my MA into the prevelance of music in society and what types of music they were.  I also researched the cultural split that can occur based upon music as we create ingroups and outgroups in society drawn along lines based often on musical taste.  I have posted a few ‘secular’ songs that I think should be included in worship on my blog.  The alternative hymnal does just that.
