Problem is that our striving for some semblance of performative perfection tends to project the erroneous notion that we can pull off spiritual transformation ourselves. It implies we believe worship is up to us, and I am sadly convinced many practice just that. If we get the right song set, the most attractive worship singers, the hottest video shoots, field the most imaginative preacher, we will grow and turn people’s lives around. Mmmmmm…..really? Biblical witness and history beg to differ.
How we worship matters, but we too often worry about how well we worship.
Read Paul’s whole post here. Excellent, excellent article.
