Boring Worship--100 Words--Part 1

[Today, I begin a mini-series on worship. Truthfully, I don't know how many blogs I will write about this subject. Maybe two, maybe more. I'll just let my heart and mind be my guide. As always, your comments are welcome.]

Boring worship.

That’s an oxymoron if I have ever heard one.

It shouldn’t exist.

It shouldn’t be accepted.

Not by ministers, nor church members.

In a Christian church, we often talk about the “gospel.” In simplest terms, the gospel is the good news of Jesus Christ—His birth, life, death, resurrection.

When believers gather for worship, we gather in celebration of that gospel.

What can be boring about that? How can we make it boring?

Yet, somehow we do just that.

I’m not pointing fingers. I’m just exhausted with it.

I’m ready for a revolution in worship.

How about you?


  1. Most certainly agree with you Steve. Worship not tied into music or hype but simply being in the presence of the Master. Look forward to reading the rest of your posts (and maybe commenting). :)

  2. Bill...comment any time you want...

    Hope you are better!

  3. I'm always prone to voicing the "7 last Words of the Church" - We've never done it that way before" - as a sort of obituary for exciting and relevant worship. Wayne Pratt

  4., that will preach...just probably not in the dying church...
