How many times have we heard evangelicals (especially of the Jesus-people variety) claim that they don’t get caught up in the “religiosity” of “churchianity” as expressed in things like “liturgy”? While the simplistic notion that a church doesn’t have a liturgy is easy enough to refute, Jason J. Stellman puts it succinctly:
All churches have a “liturgy” (a word that comes from the Greek term that means “religious service”). The real question, then, is not, “Is your church liturgical?” but, “Is your church’s liturgy biblical?”
Well put. Very well put. Looking forward to posting more on this nice little book about how pilgrims are to live in this “time between the times” as citizens of two spheres – those of common and special grace!
