If I’m not careful, I find myself making worship into a time that is:
rigid in structure
But real worship is messy and honest. Brutally honest. That means it’s not neatly trimmed and sometimes it smells bad. It’s the offerings of real, messy people. Living sacrifices. If offered in true seeking of the Spirit of God, the spotted lambs, the three-legged calves (juxtaposed anatomical pun, check), and the rotting meat are all welcome at the altar of God.
As a worship leader, I want to encourage times of corporate worship that are free to be:
fluid in structure
Do you try to clean up the mess? How do you encourage genuine worship?
