Amazing Grace on the black notes of the Piano: slavery & the redemption imagination


God has specially endowed us with a tremendous gift of worship. The dominance of African descendants in the entertainment industry bears testimony. Africans understood the importance of adoration through song & movement since ancient times. That they did not have access to the bible did not hinder the light of the gospel from penetrating their reality.  In a world in desperate need for knowing God, pure and delightful worship is increasingly more in need.

Our prayer should be that our gifts may be dedicated not to the glorification of man and things, but to the adoration of the living God, our prayer should be that our bodies may become a living sacrifice to the only sovereign Father of the universe.[1]
