This week’s podcast is the second part of the interview with Jonathan Rea, Creative Director of New Irish Arts.
In the second part of the interview Jonathan describes the impact of a serious health crisis and – in a section of the interview that will be of special interest to people involved in church music – he discusses some of the things he listens for in choosing new songs.
As you listen, you may like to reflect on these questions:
- If you are involved in church music, what do you think of Jonathan’s view that what we sing needs to combine theology and emotional engagement? Do you tend to one side or other?
- Are you the kind of leader who is more likely to have a 5 year plan, or is your leadership more about responding the opportunities God gives you?
