I live among a people of unclean lips” – Isaiah 6:5 & the reality of corporate sin in corporate worship…
“We live as servants of Jesus in a sinful culture. The road dust of this world clings to our feet. We are not untouched by the evil around us. If we view ourselves as Christian escape artists wo slither through the Monday-to-Saturday world, unfazed by its seduction and influence, we are only fooling ourselves. We must name the influences, behaviors, and powers that run a dark world. We must confess before God that we need cleansing.
…We have been hurt, lied to, taken advantage of, manipulated, raped, stabbed in the back, neglected, divorced, robbed. What shall we do with this stuff? The world offers no place to take it. The church invites people to bring it with them to corporate worship and confess the brokenness to God.

Mmm… an excellent read for Worshippers and leaders of Worship. I give it a 9/10. You?
