or wor h1 :ontemporary Christian music Lance Friis, junior from Concord, Calif, said he has ioubts about contemporary Christian music. "I feel kinda' aveird about listening to religious music as entertainment . . . They say it's not a worship service," he continued, "but at ihe same time, they talk about praising God, and that is worship." Norman Archibald, dean of students, said some of the Christian musicians believe they are bringing a worship ex- :erience to their audience through their performances. 'Some of the performers say, 'Worship with me.' That's wrong," he said. Contemporary Christian music often presents a 'dangerous' combination of worship and entertainment, said Wes Thornton, senior from Cedar Hill. "I dont think you should combine the two," he said. Some said concerts by Christian performers would be bet- :er entertainment for ACU students than concerts by rock or pop musicians. In the survey, conducted by members of the Reporting and Broadcast News classes, 71.5 percent of the students questioned said they would be as interested in hear- ing a well-known Christian performer on campus as in hear- ing a well-known pop singer. Winnie Gibbs, associate dean of students, said, "I'd rather have Christian musicians here than some of the ones we've had in the past. I think their lifestyles, their standards and the kinds of things they sing about are far more in line with our standards." The SA sponsored two major concerts during the year, one by Kenny Loggins in the fall, and one by Fire Fall in the spring, and lost money on both. However, when the survey was taken, 84.5 percent of respondents said the Loggins con- cert was appropriate entertainment for the ACU campus, and 96.9 percent said the SA should continue its efforts to bring mayor entertainers to campus. But the SA needs to be sensitive about which performers it brings to campus, said Brian Sandine, senior from Cor- vallis, Ore. "We don't need anybody like Ozzy Osbourne." Archibald agreed with this point of view, "My personal feeling is that any entertainer who comes across as express- ing views that are opposed to what we're doing here at ACU, we don't need." Though a consensus on the merits of contemporary Chris- tian music probably never will be reached at ACU, most students probably could agree with Friis, who said, "I've heard good and bad arguments for both sides of the issue." - Tammy Fielder
