Only as an adult have I grown to appreciate the significance of the Doxology. I'm pretty sure I could sing it (and play it, since I am a church pianist) every service and not get tired of it.
- Can You Worship Even When the Music Stinks? by Aaron Armstrong.
Reminds me of a joke: Disgruntled Church Attender is leaving after the the service and tells the pastor, "I didn't get anything out of the worship today." Pastor answers: "We weren't worshipping you." Let that four word sermon sink in a bit before attending service Sunday morning.
