Life and ministry

From Seblewengel Daniel, Perception and Identity, p. 367:

“The songs of Mirtnesh Tilahun which included Scriptures in song, gained wide acceptance in 2005 and paved the way for successor singers to do the same. The Gubae [spiritual gatherings in church compounds or public halls] opened a way for the Orthodox public to hear sermons from the Bible and enjoy gospel songs. It was as though the Orthodox believers, who were critical of some of the church’s tradition and did not appreciate the Evangelicals’ extreme measures of abondoning it, finally were able to worship in Orthodox terms.”
