The word ‘sanctuary’ means ‘holy place’ so, whether by design or default, the change makes sense. The holy presence of God has been replaced by an entertainment mindset. Recently, I attended a missionary service in a denominational church, later to reflect on that experience as it is representative of many contemporary ‘worship’ services.

As if in competition with the latest nightclub, the front wall is painted black–floor to ceiling, corner to corner. The pulpit stand, once known as the sacred desk, is nowhere in sight; removed. Massive overhead batteries of lights shine down and dance around the performers who own ‘the stage’, as it is now called.
