Stuck on New
Bobby Neal Winters on Worshiping After the First Date
When my wife and I started attending our church in 1989, we only attended about once a month or so, but each Sunday I was there, I was faced with a variety of hymns I didn’t know. I made the mistake of voicing a desire to have some contemporary music added to the service, when I really meant I wanted to have some Fanny Crosby, Augustus Toplady, and Charles Wesley added to the mix. I was, unknown to myself, running into territory where angels fear to tread.
