The word for the day is ethnodoxology – the art of making praise songs in local languages. Praise should come from the heart, so it is best given in one’s heart language.
Right now, my friend Joseph Gyebi, worship leader, pastor, aficionado of Ghana Gospel music, and student of engaging culture for Christ, is helping the Nkonya people of Ghana develop new praise songs in their language.
Ethnodoxology, it’s what will happen in heaven.
I got a report from a colleague who was there: “Your friend Pastor Gyebi, royally gifted us with an awesome workshop this Friday-Sunday.”.
