In speaking for myself. Yet, by your gracious patience,
I will a round unvarnish'd tale deliver . . ."
(William Shakespeare's Othello, I.iii.88-90)

This is one of the best things I have read on worship in a long time.
"Many congregations lose the Divine Service in what turns into little more than a performance. Other congregations, on the other hand, take a functionalistic view. As long as there is an organist, six or seven hymns we all like, and a liturgy, we’re fine.
Can I just say that neither attitude, it seems to me, really upholds the Divine Service and the gifts Christ gives in it?"
