Tragic Worship

Carl Trueman is always making interesting observations. Here’s one on how the tragic should be part of our worship. I think this has traditionally been an integral part of African-American worship (at least in my experience) and certainly was as Trueman notes true as a consequence of using the psalter in other contexts, but much modern worship misses this. One sentence that captures a key part of his theme:

Only the dead can be resurrected.
