N.T. Wright on the worldwide hunger for worship

Here’s an interesting video from N.T. Wright on the tremendous hunger that exists in the world for worship and what we can do about it. Specifically, he calls on us to work on two things:

  1. More regular worship. As he says, “frankly, one day a week ain’t good enough.” We need to educate people on individual and family worship so that worship can become a regular part of their daily lives.
  2. More emphasis on liturgy. Wright argues that liturgy can be very helpful in educating people for worship, especially when they are just learning how to do it. He rightly points out that the “imperative to be spontaneous” can be a terrible burden, constraining people from engaging in individual and family worship.

  1. ONe of the highlights of my day is “song and prayers” before bedtime with my family, the kids are very young but even so I think it teaches them volumes that praise and prayer to God are just a normal part of family life. One of my concerns is how many evangelical parents expect the children and youth ministries of their church to raise their kids as Christians for them.
