Liturgy Is a Show

WARNING: I must warn you that this episode contains language that might upset some of you.

While hanging out in L.A. for Theology Beer Camp, Jason and I were joined by Todd Littleton of the Patheological Podcast to interview a few of the featured camp speakers. Before this post gets moving I would be remiss if did not invite you to subscribe to Patheological. It is a great podcast covering all areas of theology for both the pastor as well as the person in the pew.

We should let pop music do our worship music for us.

We look to our worship music to express how we feel too literally. This is particularly true of contemporary Christian music. Music generates an emotional response and arch.  The problem of contemporary Christian music that Barry points out is the formula often used. Did you say “Jesus” enough? Were there enough invitations of surrender?

Barry talks about this, along with his unique conversion experience.
