I really love Sally Morganthaller (sp?). I’ve always had a funny feeling about her contending for worship evangelism. Her book was put into much practice in the youth ministry I now lead, and “successfully” so (quotes indicate success according to formerly chosen metrics, of which I disagree).
She now has gotten out of the worship industry and published a really wild article through a little ministry in Idaho. Here’s a taste:
No sad songs. No angry songs. Songs about desperation, but none about despair. Worship for the perfect. The already arrived. The good-looking, inoffensive, and nice. No wonder the unchurched aren’t interested.
