The Worship Experience
The worship wars are over, and most protestant churches now feature a praise band or worship team. In the quest for relevance, today’s churches offer worship experiences that are in tune with the expectations that parishioners receive from contemporary pop-culture. However, some are beginning to recognize that this pop-music worship style lacks a certain transcendence, and in their quest to find a sense of the sacred, many are abandoning evangelicalism and are becoming Catholic or Eastern Orthodox. So is this new appreciation for gregorian chants and swinging incense a healthy reaction? What is worship, anyway? That’s what’s on tap on this edition of White Horse Inn.
