Beware of the Just in Case philosophy at church services

Beware of the “Just in Case” philosophy when conducting church services.  It’s human wisdom at its best and I see it creeping into churches.  This philosophy says, “Prepare every detail of the service in advance, prepare the worship music exactly the way you want it.  Prepare and rehearse the introduction of the sermon and songs, so you don’t stumble over your words.  Get the closing prayer written down and ready.  Then, Just in Case the Lord doesn’t show up, you can still put on a great show!”  Church service should NOT be like a Broadway production. (Robert Brownell)
