My dad and I chat a lot about some of the current trends in worship, and how we’re both old enough now to have seen so many “this is it’s” come and go. One of our favorite topics of conversation is titles given to things that for all practical purposes haven’t really changed…spiritual architect (service planner), worship curator (music director), liturgical post-rock (worship music), leader of leaders (unemployed). With apologies to any of you who hold those titles; but let’s be honest, have a sense of humour about yourselves. I myself am a professional ambient musician (own a reverb pedal, a laptop, and a Bandcamp account).
And one quote stood out:
“I’m surprised (sort of…) that worship is still synonymous with music/arts as opposed to honor and obedience. Now there’s a staff position for someone: curator of honor and obedience. “ – Dan Verkade
Good reminder (complete overhaul) for the weekend.
