Is your plug and play worship preparation and leadership really just the modern version of sliding the hymn numbers into the hymn board? If so…why does your church need you? Deep calling unto deep worship that reminds congregants that the Lord’s song is with us in the night may never occur until you lead as an artisan instead of an assembly line worker (Psalm 42).
Assembly Line: A repetitive, monotonous, inflexible process in which a succession of identical products are turned out in a mechanically efficient, though impersonal manner.
Artisan: A craftsperson or technician in an applied art who with great care, skill, and precision handcrafts a high quality, distinctive, and unique product.
The society based on production is only productive, not creative. Albert Camus
Every production of an artist should be the expression of an adventure of his soul. W. Somerset Maugham
