Im Moment geht’s in der Kubik-Rekonstruktionsphase bei Kubik gerade um Lobpreis. Hier mal zwei Zitate aus „Emerging Churches: Creating Christian Community in Postmodern Cultures“ (Eddie Gibbs, Ryan Bolger) zu dem Thema, die ich gestern gelesen habe:
Sitting in pews, standing up, sitting down, the same format each week – it just wasn’t working for us. As artists, writers, creative people, we felt uncomfortable int the single, fixed configuration of soft-rock worship and three-point linear preaching. We felt the body was dying around us. We were frustrated. We sat each week surrounded by some of the brightest talents in film, TV, theater, art, social work, and politics who were made to watch in virtual silence because they did not play guitar or preach. These were the only two gifts that were acceptable as worship. It seemed such a waste. We thought it was outrageous that all these gifts were being used in the corporate world, in the market economy, but were being snubbed in the church. We saw that if worship is about gift, then what we bring to worship has to be integral to us, something meaningful from who we are.

Only two times in Scripture do Christians sing, and on both occasions they are in prison!
