David Keen has some interesting thoughts on worship, today. He reckons that there are four things that make church worship difficult for him; his theological training, his worry about what outsiders might think, perfectionism and the fact that he has often led worship sessions himself. He closes with this remark:
Maybe it’s through things which don’t look like normal ‘worship’ where my critical faculties are down, that God can get in and do something. Perhaps that’s why ‘alternative worship’ has always attracted me. Perhaps it’s also why Christian music often doesn’t engage me in the same way as ‘secular’ music with a spiritual message (e.g. Coldplay, U2) (read more).
