Candles and Hebrews

Bob Kauflin posted on the use of candles in worship here (scroll down to Nov 17). I was somewhat surprised by the fact that some people associate candles with new age practices and that it is a stumbling block for them in worship. I agree with Bob that they candles are not inherently evil and that they can be used to create a contemplative environment as well as point to the light of the gospel and Christ.

Also, here is a video he posted today from the conference I attended at his church in August. This was an amazing dramatic retelling of Hebrews 9-10. Ryan Furgeson's retelling brought the Word to life in a powerful and inspiring way!
