Plus, this spring and summer mark the return of a staple of worship culture: conferences. These large-scale events offer leaders and musicians training, teaching, new music, and the opportunity to participate in carefully planned and produced worship services led by nationally known figures. Are leaders shaping worship in a way that allows congregants to address God honestly, whether from a place of fear, celebration, mourning, or hope? Kelsey Kramer McGinnis has written about this for Christianity Today. She joins us for an in-depth conversation in the 8 am hour.
