Worship Quote of the Week

In contemporary society the heart is reached through participation, and all approaches to worship—traditional, contemporary, or blended—need to relearn how to achieve services characterized by immersed participation. Robert E. Webber

I'd have to whole-heartily agree with this statement. I've been to multiple churches (of several different denominations) where it was very easy to "tune-out" part of the service, often it was because I was being preached at, not invited into the Story. There was essentially nothing for me to do but sit quietly in the pew and absorb whatever was being imparted to me. It lead to the very consumeristic nature of worship that's become so problematic in churches today.
