Wonder who moved this from the Worship forum - since the primary question was it's appropriateness for worship from a non-EP perspective?
Is EP the requirement for worship song discussions? Just curious.
No, EP is not a requirement for worship song discussions.
Thanks for the reply! Was wondering what the rationale was.
I moved the thread because it looked like the conversation was heading toward a discussion of the asthetics of the song.
Are asthetics discussions inappropriate for a worship song?
Regardless, I don't think it is a proper worship song because of its theology, in particular:
I find I’m moving to the rythyms of your grace
The line strongly suggests that grace is something that we cooperate with. But as confessional Christians, we view grace as the unmerited and free favor of God.
Does the author imply that it is his own effort causing him to move in alignment with God's grace?
As has been mentioned earlier, the song's view of the Grace of God is more commonplace in Charismatic or Catholic circles. But I think this "word picture" denigrates the Grace of God: it's some kind of background feature we groove to.
I think you are injecting a bias into the song that it does not express.
BTW, I'm not an EPer.
Good deal - please feel free to continue in the dialog. Your perspective is interesting.
