So many of the arguments we have about the right way to do church aren’t about the church at all. They’re about the seasoning we add to it.
One prefers the smokiness of high liturgy candles, another wants a southern gospel twang, while someone else prefers a Pentecostal flavor on their tongue. Some add a kick of salsa, a touch of soul, or they experiment with fresh, new ingredients.
So often, when we think we’re taking a stand for the meat of the matter, we’re doing little more than squabbling over the seasoning.
