Secular Song, Christian Connotation

Join us this Friday, February 27th at 7:30pm for a night of musical fellowship!

We’re going to give a quick beginner lesson on piano/guitar chords for those unfamiliar with these instruments. We also need vocalists, so warm up those voices and study those lyrics.

Our selected song for the night: Viva La Vida by Coldplay.

This song is full of Christian imagery — Jerusalem’s bells, pillars of salt, Saint Peter, missionaries — to name a few.  We can discuss the significance these (and more) if you’re interested.

Here are a few links if you want to get the most out of the night.

Hope to see you!

  • Talk to people who have known them and hear stories about them
  • Be able to know what they would and wouldn’t do
  • Find out and understand what is important to them
