What does God desire in our worship and worship leading? One word: BROKENNESS. "You will not delight in sacrifice, or I would give it; you will not be pleased with a burnt offering. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise."  - Psalm 51:16-17

In our worship and worship leading, God desires us to be humble, dependent, reliant, weak and broken. This is very opposed to what we find in the church today. Church / Worship Leaders are bold, self-reliant, have all the answers, and are on a mission to change the world. But are we fooling ourselves? Today we talk with our friend Sam Salerno about embracing, even boasting in, our brokenness, weakness and dependance on God. No self-righteousness allowed. Dive into the deep end and feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section.
