July 20, 2015: What the Church Needs

Robert E. Webber

Ancient-future worship is not a gimmick or show or the latest adventure. There has been far too much “we need to start the church all over again” innovation since the late sixties. The church and its theology are not to be reinvented every generation. The church may need to be inspired, perhaps contextualized, but never trashed to start again.

-Robert E. Webber, Ancient-Future Worship: Proclaiming and Enacting God’s Narrative (Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Books, 2008), 167.
