  1. This is our burden as we write -to write songs that go deeper than surface-level spirituality. Songs that are full of doctrine; yet not difficult for congregational singing.

  3. Helpful as far as it goes to discerning readers. The text is vitally important. It is also vitally important that the text is supported by an equally robust and worthy style of instrumentation and singing. (which is often minimized) I also would not want to reference Fernando Ortega without also informing readers that he is a devout Anglican. This helps with discerning his writings/direction.
