Feb 12, 2018: Irrelevant Worship?

Robert E. Webber

We should be concerned about the apparent failure of our churches to tell the story of Christ through the order of worship. . . . A nonstorytelling form of worship has been frozen in place in many evangelical churches. These haphazard forms are frequently regarded as biblical, even though they don’t tell the story, and relevant, even though they are dull and out of touch with the human need.
