In the next few months for my leaders corner, we are going to go through an article written by Joe McKeever titled "7 Things We Regularly Get Wrong About Worship." It's a tough study, and some might not agree with everything the author has to say, but it definitely spoke to me and made me reevaluate some of my own attitudes. If you happen to jump into this discussion halfway through, you can revisit the earlier sections online on our CTK website. The first section is titled:
You are Not Supposed to “Get Anything Out of the Service”
Worship is not about you and me. Not about "getting our needs met." Not about a performance from the pastor and singer and choir and musicians. Not in the least.
Next corner, we will look at why!
P.S. While my prayer is that each of you will be blessed and filled with the spirit through the music and the teaching, make no mistake. We are here; called to GIVE worship and praise to God our Father.
