I was a praise and worship leader for four decades. I suppose I could still lead, but my role in life and ministry is different now.
I miss that role at times, especially when I see leaders overly concerned with their performance and presentation of the music. It grieves me when I see this for that shouldn't be their focus.
It's easy to see that American culture exalts good performance and entertainers. But this is more of a human flaw than a cultural one.
