A tendency to control the process

This post is from the defunct blog “Dying Church”

From a chapter, written by Premkumar D. Williams, in Everyday Theology:

..models pore over their portfolios, singers over their music videos, and preachers over their sermons Yes, we can do these for Christ's sake, but when this involves advertising, programming, management, and leadership of a large number of people responsible for a variety of activities all geared toward creating the best impression on the visitor, there is a tendency to control the process so as to guarantee the product. This can tempt one to squeeze the Spirit out of the scene and lean on the dynamics of performance.
