Boring Worship--100 Words--Part 2
[Today, I continue 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 is not caused by a pipe organ rattling chandeliers and stained glass windows.
Nor is it caused by drums deafening everyone on the front row, or 20th row.
It is not caused by sermons being read by a pastor who never makes eye contact.
Nor it is caused by sermons carried by satellite to a distance campus site.
Boring worship is more of an attitude. Worshippers gathered to praise one another instead of the King of kings. It comes when the focus isn’t upon the appropriate Personhood of God.
Boring worship is caused by apathetic worshippers.
