Wasting time with God: Why Christ-Centered Worship Matters
How do you contend with people who are never happy with the worship experience? Do you feel like you have to be a “people pleaser” concerning worship? What are some helpful steps in creating a Christ-centered worship experience? Is there a difference between “Christians worshipping” and “Christian worship”? Does the church calendar, pastoral prayer, reciting creeds, etc., have a place in today’s worship? What expressions of faith are relevant in today’s worship? What is the purpose and place of worship in the church today? Are you still doing worship that feels like you’re in the 1950’s? Is that wrong?
