O Love that Wilt Not Let Me Go

O Love, that wilt not let me go, I rest my weary soul in Thee; I give Thee back the life I owe, That in Thine ocean depths its flow May richer, fuller be. O Light, that followest all my way, I yield my flickering torch to Thee; My heart restores its borrowed ray, That […]

Shut Up and Sing Up: Reflections on American 'Worship'

There is a growing sense of unease when I visit many American churches. Call it something I can’t quite discern gnawing away at me.
