This article has been all over the inter-webs for the last few days. I just want to highlight one small quote that I think brings it home:
Many of us, myself included, are finding ourselves increasingly drawn to high church traditions – Catholicism, Eastern Orthodoxy, the Episcopal Church, etc. –precisely because the ancient forms of liturgy seem so unpretentious, so unconcerned with being “cool,” and we find that refreshingly authentic.
So, stop trying to be cool.
Preach God’s story.
