The LGBT Chapter

Marsha had been a member of one of the earliest pioneer groups of Jesus music, which was a fusion between gospel and rock music in the church in the late 1960s and early 1970s. β€œChildren of the Day” was a quartet comprised of Marsha, her younger sister Wendy, Steve Jacobs, and Marsha’s husband, Russ Stevens. They had been friends in high school and were all involved musically since they were children. Marsha went her separate way, while still loving Jesus as much as when she wrote the Jesus Movement anthem, Come To The Waters http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Np8GJGZ3Vv8Β Β

When I wrote the chapter on LGB&T contemporary Christian music in my book, Jesus Rocks The World: The Definitive History of Contemporary Christian Music, I wondered if it would make my book unpopular with Evangelicals, but so far I haven’t heard any comment on it one way or another.
