Missed Opportunity?

A large mainstream church in the capital city is installing a 6000-pipe organ. Fine, I like organs, though I hope they don't overpower the Messiah sing-in this year.

I think they may have gone a bit far when the music minister was quoted in the big city paper calling it "an evangelism tool, not just for [our church] but for us as Christians."

The Metropolitan Tabernacle in London only sang a capella. Imagine what Charles Spurgeon could have done if he'd had an organ to go along with the preaching.
