On the poverty of our worship

Kevin linked to this piece by Ben Myers and it’s great, but this is my fav:

When the church’s singing is structured around Israel’s psalms, there is a constant reminder that worship is not primarily a matter of personal choice; that the experience of worship is not primarily my own private experience; that the voice in worship is not even primarily my voice, but the voice of Israel, the voice of Christ, the voice of Christ’s people gathered across time and space, learning together how to transmute all the varied raw materials of human experience into the praise of God through the alchemy of Jesus Christ.

As someone who is involved in leading worship, this helps articulate my frustration and desire to do better.
