Two things we could do to improve our worship:
1. Change the "I" to "we" in 90% of the music and spoken language. The individual's worship must grow out of the collective sense of worship. It hardly ever seems to work the other way.
2. Sing and talk a lot more about God and a lot less about our experience of God. While we don't want to totally disconnect from the experiential realm we need to shift the focus. We're locked in a loop where many of us think and function as though worship were about us -- our needs, our experiences, our perceptions...
It's just a matter of rebalancing the tires.
