I am back at the keyboard for Worship Ink. I hope you will forgive the lengthy hiatus, but I went through a significant drought of creative thought that left me gasping for an expression of my thoughts, ideas, and motivations.
I believe all creative types cycle through down times when it is difficult to express themselves in a way that is meaningful. I was always told to “write through” such an impasse, but in today’s technology, posting such meanderings is a permanent record of 0’s and 1’s in digital space. In the words of Bob Seger, “rock and roll never forgets” and neither does the net.
So I have abstained for the good of all and I am now ready to return. I hope you stayed with me and will be truly interested in some of the discussions I have planned. The first is on cultural relevancy and worship. I believe I have a take that is moving us away from what has been the norm for the last decade on this subject. I will post before the end of the week. Until then, ponder and respond as you see fit to the following question:
How is the Church (global) that worships the most counter cultural figure of his time, Jesus Christ, supposed to be culturally relevant in our modern post-modern, even post-christian, world? And what does that mean for worship in our local church?
Hollar back soon!
