Choosing the cheap

In his series on "Unshackling the American Church," Dan Edelen writes against the North American church's appetite for spiritual kitsch:
The American Church's wholesale abandonment of that which is sacred and infused with meaning for that which is cheap has taken a terrible toll. Our attempts to prove culturally relevant have shown that we value what is cheap over what has meaning, rather than going the opposite way of the world.
At the same time he exposes the church's abandonment of quality and meaning, Dan offers specific advice for reclaiming it.

Thanks, Milton, for the callouts on this series. I hope that it proves that Bible-believing Christians can still find God's wonder in the created order and not be considered pantheists, humanists, leftists, or any of the other "-ists" that we use to so easily label others.

Interested article. Ever noticed how for the sake of saving money this country has chosen the cheap over the well made? I seems the church has followed this path to, the path of least resistance.
