"There’s nothing wrong with volume, flash, or extras. Just like there’s nothing wrong with speaking another language and having different customs. I know this. One person worships God best surrounded by nature, another by singing 100-year-old hymns, another reciting 1500-year-old creeds, and another in the midst of a blare of guitars and drums. Who am I to say my way of worshiping is right, or even best? I dare not."
