quote from Donald Hustad book, "Jubilate II", p. 113
"These then should be the standards of any church's worship order, when used over a period of time:
1.It will contain full theology-truth about God, God's actions, and God's promises.
2. It will give opportunity for full human response, in adoration, thanksgiving, confession and commitment, petition, and expectation.
3. It will use human language that is up-to-date (not archaic), and yet reverent, since God is a partner in the conversation. to satisfy the needs of corporate expression, such language also will be poetic enough to stimulate the imagination and yet must be commonly understood.
All worship leaders must maintain a constant, creative tension between the need for an established worship order and the need for freedom to add (or substitute) actions and words that are spontaneous in response to the moving of God's Spirit."
