  • Performance of the Biblical Book of Ruth as a Means Towards
           Trauma-healing: an Empirical Study from Cote D’Ivoire

    • Authors: June Dickie, Lynell Zogbo
      Abstract: In the past two decades, the Bete people, along with all the populations of Côte d’Ivoire, have experienced two painful civil wars, leading many to experience various kinds of physical and emotional trauma. To help them in their vulnerability, we organised a one week seminar which sought to take advantage of this ethnic’s group love of song and dance to address the needs of a limited group of women (of varying ages and backgrounds). We wished to see how arts and performance (music, dance and drama), combined with exposure to a specific biblical book, could contribute to the women’s healing and ignite hope. The book of Ruth was chosen as our focus because of its strong message of God’s hesed (loyalty and love), its many parallels to Bete culture, and the various points of connection (story line and main characters) which the text provides. While in alignment with many theoretical constructs of trauma-healing, our study suggests that an indirect, less intrusive approach to trauma healing can have very positive results.

  • The Use of Indigenous Musical Instruments in Traditional Christian Worship
           of the Yoruba, Nigeria

    • Authors: Emmanuel Fasipe
      Abstract: The use of indigenous musical instruments has played a significant role in the life and worship experience of the Yoruba Christians of Southwestern Nigeria. The early missionaries who brought Christianity to Yorubaland discouraged the use of indigenous songs and musical instruments in Christian worship. They believed that engaging in the singing and playing of indigenous musical instruments may lead the Yoruba converts back to worshiping their formal traditional gods and goddess. The indigenous musical instruments that were regarded as inappropriate for the worship of the Triune God of the Bible have become prominent today in Yoruba Christian worship. This study examines the transformation process of indigenous musical instruments used in Yoruba Christian corporate worship. The study also looks into some of the challenges and benefits of using indigenous musical instruments in Christian corporate worship.

  • Method for Analyzing Lyrics in Congregational Singing

    • Authors: Kristi Colas
      Abstract: How important are the lyrics that we sing in church' Do they necessitate analysis and evaluation' If so, how might ethnodoxologists enable indigenous church leaders to do this in order to assess and improve their congregation’s active repertory' I developed a simple method for lyrical analysis and tested it during workshops with evangelical Christians in the United States, Central Asia, and France. Participants begin by considering why we sing as a congregation, according to Scripture. Next, they analyze song lyrics found in the Bible by asking specific questions of the text. They then apply the same analysis to song lyrics in their congregation’s active repertory and draw conclusions. The final section of the workshop involves stepping back and considering three major “lenses” through which we view worship: the cognitive, affective, and physical dimensions. I believe that this method of lyrical analysis could be beneficial both to ethnodoxologists and to indigenous congregations, because it increases awareness of lyrics, teaches critical thinking, and provides an objective grid for application in both literary and oral cultures.

  • Singing from Our Soul: Worship music development in Latin American
           Vineyard Churches (1994-2017)

    • Authors: Fernando Mora
      Abstract: The purpose of this article, besides highlighting some of the history of Vineyard worship in Latin America, is to bring to the table a discussion about the use of translated songs and their influence in the development and maturation of Vineyard worship music in the region. This analysis is done from the points of view of the complexity of the esthetic problem that song translation creates; the signification of worship music as a turning point in a process of rupture with the past of Latin American worship leaders and musicians; and the role that song translation plays in musical localization. The final section is a call to reconsider diversity and the need to create new worship music from the realities and contexts where Latin American Vineyards are immersed, according to the variety of possibilities that the continent offers to local congregations, theologians, composers, and musicians, for missional reflection and agency, and for poetic and musical composition in different indigenous styles and themes.
