I'm becoming more convinced that for worship to be truly Christian, there must be some enactment or statement of the Gospel. Given that Christ is the only mediator between God and humanity, it makes sense that one would mention or "rehearse" this Gospel so that we all are reminded about how it is we are able to approach the Father without being struck down then and there. Given that confession is an important piece to understanding the Gospel (how can the news be good unless we acknowledge that it's predicated on something bad...i.e. our sin?

My thoughts on confession vs. triumph in worship have received mixed reviews in the past (see my most recent post: http://www.zachicks.com/blog/2010/1/15/less-victory-more-confession...). Nevertheless, I'm interested in hearing from those who are leading worship in some of the more mainstream evangelical churches.

Do you incorporate confession? If so, how do you do it? How do you think of confession in terms of what's important to modern worship, namely, "flow"?

Thanks,
Z
