Wayback Wednesday: Worship as Entertainment

The Facebook page for Lay Anglicana shared this blog post on “worshiptainment” this morning.  I’ve been complaining of this phenomenon for quite a while, although my reasons are somewhat different from those of Mr. Livingstone.

My blog post, which appeared in July 2014, is here.  My problem is bigger than just whether the churches “attract” people (especially young people).  My question is about the erosion of sacred space, and the hard work of making Christianity a morally and intellectually demanding–and credible–way of life.
