a word from Dr. Peterson

I've been getting into the book of Revelation the past couple of days in my devotional times with God. Definitely a book that I have often wrestled with, but such a great book for worshippers and worship leaders.

Yesterday I read Eugene Peterson's introduction to this book in the Message...he has some amazing thoughts on worship:
Worship shapes the human community in response to the living God. If worship is neglected or perverted, our communities fall into chaos or under tyranny. [whoa!]

Our times are not propitious for worship. The times never are. The world is hostile to worship. The Devil hate worship. As The Revelation makes clear, worship must be carried out under conditions decidedly uncongenial to it.
