More Than Singing: The Link Between Worship and Justice

More Than Singing: The Link Between Worship and Justice

Dear Joe,

I want to begin by applauding you for your passion and drive to willingly enter the dark cracks of your city, intent on serving those on the fringe. On this basis, however, I’m unable to overlook the following comment you shared regarding worship: "why worship? It’s just feel good fluff. The important place to be is at an idle-No-More rally or working at the food bank."

These words left me feeling somewhat miffed. In the past I’ve heard Christians speak haphazardly of worship, but when I read the words, “why worship?” I new they were not used by accident, which is of great concern to me.
