Liturgical Change

Category: Theology - Liturgical :: Permalink

Wise words from James Jordan about changes in liturgy:

Truth does not take hold unless people see that the teacher lives sacrificially and lovingly with them. Just so, returning to powerful Scriptural worship is not going to happen as a result of reading essayletters or preaching alone. People will have confidence in making changes when they see that their leaders love them, and that their leaders live sacrificially among them (Theses on Worship, p. 46).

That’s the kind of thing pastors (like me) need to hear often and, all too often, learn slowly and usually by sad experience.
