Repairer of the Breach


God of reconciliation,
you created a perfect world that quickly became full of sin,
man in your image, who soon became your enemy:
Turn our selfish hearts back to you,
and restore us to a right relationship,
that we might receive your love and love you once again;
through Jesus Christ, the Repairer of the Breach,
who, with you, fills us with the Holy Spirit
to love your creation to death
and resurrection. Amen.

Christ-Centered Worship - A New Book


Hey Friends! Long time no post. The second half of the summer has been absolutely crazy. I do hope to post more frequently this fall as things settle down a bit.

I just wanted to make you all aware of a new book that may instantly become a standard resource in the modern worship conversation. The book is called Christ-Centered Worship: Letting the Gospel Shape Our Practice by Bryan Chapell, author of Christ-Centered Preaching, a preaching standard.

Tim Keller, whom I admire tremendously, has already said this about the new book:

Christ-Centered Worship calls people to go beyond "contemporary worship" without being polemical in spirit. It takes historic worship traditions very seriously but uses the gospel itself as the way to critique and design orders of worship. It is full, balanced, and extremely practical. This will now be the first book I give people--or turn to myself--on the practice of understanding, planning, and leading in corporate worship.

Wow! - the "first book" he gives people and turns to himself. Here is the book's promotional video:
