http://ministryfeeds.com/effective-churches/worship-is-spiritual-not-performance/

A friend of mine called the other day to ask my advice about something going on at his church. It seems one of their lead worship singers leaves the room as soon as she is finished and sits in the lobby drinking coffee and never attends worship. He has said something to her a couple […]
