If you invited an unsaved friend to a Southern Gospel concert…
If you wanted to invite an unsaved friend to a Southern Gospel concert, and could pick a concert by any group, which group’s concert would you take your friend to?
I started a thread on the Singing News forums asking this question. It will be interesting to watch the responses.
But here is how I would answer the question: It all depends on the person.
If the person was a member of the MTV generation, I would probably take them to a Signature Sound concert. That would unquestionably get their attention, and hopefully they would be ready to hear the Gospel message contained in songs like “Forgiven Again” or “Oh, What a Savior.”
But, truth be told, I don’t believe I have any unsaved friends near my own age. I probably have more unsaved friends over 40 than under. Who would I take them to hear?
This question is a little harder to answer. One of the first groups that comes to mind might be the Mark Trammell Trio, because Mark lays out the Gospel so clearly and many of his concerts are specifically evangelistic in nature. But I don’t really know which group I would most prefer to invite an unsaved friend to hear. It will be interesting to read your perspectives, both in the Singing News forum and in the comments here.
