UPDATE: Just after I posted this, I saw that Bo Sanders had blogged almost simultaneously about contemporary worship music, focusing on “How He Loves” as an example. While that is an easy song to pick on, I’m not sure whether I agree with his insistence that lyrics always need to be clear and unambiguous. I wonder whether that view of lyrics actually reflects the (in my opinion, problematic) view that theology offers clear statements to which we assent, rather than symbols which point to a transcendent mystery.
