Another time, the "worship team" was trying to lead the congregation in an adapted version of a pop-folk song, the lyrics of which included, "I can change the world with these two hands." It dawned on me: Just who are we worshiping exactly?
"The worship God is seeking relies completely on His initiative, knowing that the only true expression of worship is through the abandonment of all our agendas for His, as we trust in His sovereign power and unlimited grace. It is from this heart posture that true liturgy flows, that music and arts find their highest calling and that the light of a worshipping community shines as a beacon of hope to a suffering and searching world."This is why marketing a church's music in terms of "moving" people or "impacting" people is stupid.
