30-minute Worship


Too busy for a whole hour and a half of worship? Here’s your solution.

Some things I don’t like about this site:

  1. They’re promoting 30-minute worship.
  2. They use “r” instead of “are.”
  3. They link to a f.a.q. page that doesn’t actually have any questions—frequently asked or otherwise.
  4. The sermon is longer than the worship!
  5. They left the hyphen out of “30-minute.”
  6. The circle-graphic thing at the top right of the page cuts off some of the copy.

Circle Graphic

Some things I do like about this site:

  1. The grungy look.
  2. The VW beetle at the bottom of the page.
Can you find it?

Am I turning into a watchdog site?

    Every time I see a church try and do church with out doing church I can only think of one thing,

    nickels and noses.

    that is to say, it’s another way of getting people to ‘attend’ something without costing much money and increasing the giving. Or maybe I’m just jaded by the explosion of the video venue.

    Why is it that “worship” is so often equated with music?

    Is music worship? Yes.

    Can worship mean singing songs or using music? Yes.

    Does worship only mean music? NO!!

    I’m frustrated by restricting a word such as worship that means so many things and encompases (or should encompas) so much of our lives to merely a few minutes of singing at a gathering.

    Maybe I’m splitting hairs but I think how we talk about what we do reveals a lot about our hearts. I don’t merely want to worship God for 30 minutes when its convenient. And I don’t want my worship to be defined as singing for 12-15 minutes.
