For this episode of Comm Talk By Geek Devotions; we are introducing a new segment called Primitive Rhythm Machine. This new monthly instalment features our dear friends John Harju and Stephen MacDonald who aim to educate you Devoted Geeks about really good Christian music and how to use discernment about what we as Christians listen to. In this episode, we have a loose introduction of Steve and John and their thoughts on music in general. They also take some time to talk about how they hope the show will go and assign listening homework for each other, and you.
