Sunday, April 06, 2003 AD Worship Music If there's one issue in my life that I just wish would disappear, it's the debate -- both my internal debate and the one that continues in the church at large -- about worship music styles and substance. It seems as if everything I read (like these and this and this and this and this...not to mention a host of private correspondence and conversations) pulls me in a different direction, makes me distrust myself even more, makes me more frustrated with the body of Christ that we can't agree on this enough so I don't feel pulled in different directions.
But there are bright spots. I see God refining me through this. If nothing else, it's made me constantly ask, Am I just being prideful in my preferences? Am I being culturally idolatrous? Am I graciously listening to what others have to say? Am I respecting those to whom respect is due? Am I really seeking God's truth, or am I just seeking Valerie's truth? And sometimes He lets me catch a glimpse of of how the Body of Christ is actually supposed to function in the midst of disagreement. Posted by Valerie (Kyriosity) at 4/06/2003 08:15:00 PM
