Praise Song Cruncher

Using an article authored by Pastor Wolfmueller entitled "Criteria for Discerning the Usefulness of Praise Songs" (http://www.hope-aurora.org/docs/praisesongcruncher.pdf) we listen to a praise song (or other Christian song) and read the lyrics and by asking the 5 diagnostic questions, determine it's usefulness in the church.

Show #357: The Praise Song Cruncher Endures Forever

Audio: 

Could the Hymns of the Church survive the Praise Song Cruncher?
On today's episode Pastors Wolfmueller and Goeglein respond to a listeners email by playing "Praise Song Cruncher". They run the sentence fragmenty, mystically Chris Tomlin song "Forever" through the Cruncher first and then they attempt to answer the listener question, "Could the Hymns of the Church survive a pass through the Praise Song Cruncher?" ... Finally, the same listener email inspires a quick game of Bible Bee. Is this good radio/podcasting, or what?

Show #352: Is Jesus holding you?

Audio: 

After some buzzwords it is time once again to crunch on some praise songs. On this episode we run “Hold Me” by Toby Mack through the Praise Song Cruncher and ask, “Is Jesus holding you?” and then we run “A New Creation” by Bel Thompson through the Cruncher. Will these songs pass? Listen and see!

And just ignore all the buzz about playing Bible Bee. Sorry, we just ran out of time.
