“There are others who are primarily concerned that their experience of worship ‘meet their needs.’ However their ‘needs’ are defined, this approach to worship invariably reveals the problematic consequence of gospel reductionism. It is missionally relevant in the way it shows how much we are captive to our culture and its priorities. The ‘gospel which meets my needs’ must be replaced with the good news that reveals needs I did not know I had while providing healing I never dreamed was possible.”

from The Continuing Conversion of the Church by Darrell L. Gruder, page 155
