This was too good to stay tucked away in a comment by my Aunt Barbara (hide it under a bushel? No! I’m gonna let it shine!). The blog she mentions can be found here: go read it, and see if you can find this intense quote among the comments:
Evangelicalism is so liturgically bankrupt, confused, and accomodated as to be repulsive. When the idol of consumer relevance is enshrined in the center of our passions and our worship, the result is a wasting cancer that will destroy us from in inside out, just as a quite different idolatry consumed Israel.
Now I’m no musical reactionary; my church uses not only the Trinity Hymnal, but also a songbook of our own devising (I say “our” because it was principally my church brothers and sisters, but it was before my time there), with a number of excellent songs of recent vintage (some of which in style I think can well be categorized as actual hymns). There are some songs in common rotation which I find too poppy (well, maybe I am kind of a reactionary), but the collection is by far the best para-hymnal I’ve ever run across. I just wish it wasn’t self-published so I could tell you where to go and buy one!
