This article addresses the issue of politics in worship and examines how this issue is worked out in several different congregations.
Many Christians contend that politics and Sunday morning worship are like oil and water—they just don’t mix. They reject the notion that politics has any place in Christian worship. Others, while not rejecting the idea outright, contend that pastors, worship committees, and liturgists need to be very cautious when interjecting political matters into worship services. Still others might welcome a stronger prophetic witness against contemporary cultural practices or social structures within congregational worship.
