In the Past Hunter, Julie's friend introduced her to Soaking Worship. Now I understand rhat many of you have no clue what is, so I'm here to tell you.
The purpose of Soaking Music is "setting aside of oneself to focus and meditate on God for renewal of strength and peace"[dead link]
It is a relatively new genre on the Christian music scene. It finds its origins in the likes of the Toronto revival. Popularized by the recent upsurgence of local prayer houses, it has developed to incorporate some typical characteristics such as spontaneous singing, free praise, and instrumental sections. Often spontaneous in nature, the style somewhat resembles the feel of Easy Listening. It explores Christian themes, often focusing on the attributes of Jesus Christ and His achievements. Defining features include an unstructured approach with plenty of space and a relaxing mood. Simple and melodic lines are used with a strong presence of repetition. Sudden changes or upbeat, driving rhythms are often avoided.
Soaking music is not prevalent in a vast majority of Christian churches, whose services consist more of contemporary Christian music and praise and worship." from wikipedia
Soaking Worship is a big part of Julie's life. If you are catholic there are many things you do that not many others do. It becomes part of your life. Although I have never experienced this, I'm starting to. It may not be abif part of my life because I wasn't raised in it nor have I had friends who introduced it to me, but I want it for my character and I will ot apologize.
Here is a couple of videos of Soaking Worship
