Early church disputes over theology and orthodoxy can often be dismissed as irrelevant arguments over inane theological minutia; but, I believe the conversations were really about relationships.
Whether we worship with praise bands in contemporary auditoriums or with surpliced-choirs signing Anglican cathedral music in traditional sanctuaries, the real question that must be asked is this - are we welcoming people?
It almost seems like we're in this arms race of sorts - popular culture has filled people's schedules with task upon task upon task, and church, desirous of being viable, has followed suit. We've become junkies hooked on the drug of production and doing. To apply a religious lens to it, we have begun serving the gods of "more" instead of hearing the call of a God who creates space to rest and be.
