Diana Butler Bass offers a compelling analysis of where she sees the church headed in the world of faith in which we live today. In this brilliant segment she explains the premise of her new book, Christianity After Religion, and explains where she sees the church going in this uncertain age.
1 Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth.
2 Worship the LORD with gladness; come into his
presence with singing.

Other times, not so much. We may be able to drag ourselves out of bed and to a worship service, but we hardly have a song on our lips.
