"That Was Some Good Worship Today"

My apologies to those of you who already interacted with me on Twitter about this. Yesterday morning I had this thought…

I wish people knew how theologically incorrect it is to say “worship was great” when referring to church music.

(You could say the same thing about people who say “worship wasn’t as good today.”)

My worry with this is that by using phrases like this, whether we have good intentions with them or not, is we begin to equate music and church music exclusively with worship. And also that we subtly start thinking of worship as something that only happens for a few hours on Sunday morning and not something that is part of our lives.

What do you think?
