The Gift of Liturgy for a Fragmented World

David Gungor and John Arndt from the band, The Brilliance, discuss the value of liturgy to today's culture. They particularly focus on how music can contribute to prayer and they share some of the music that they have written around the church calendar. Presented at the 2014 CCCA Razor's Edge Conference
