“defenestration,” which derives from “fenestra,” the Latin word for “window,” refers to the act of throwing something or someone out of the window. Knowing this, we can impress our friends with statements like, “Sally finished her apple and defenestrated the core.”)”
Doug Erlandson, How to Think Clearly: A Guide to Critical Thinking

“The sense that we have come together to glorify God in worship rather than to be entertained must be maintained. The place of worship can add to or detract from that sense. Auditoriums designed to look like concert halls most definitely do the latter.”
Doug Erlandson, Spiritual Anorexia: How Contemporary Worship Is Starving the Church

“First, if there must be a worship team, remove it from the stage and stick it in the balcony (or, if there is no balcony, at least place it far enough to one side of the congregation so that the worshippers have to look sideways to see it). All instruments, including the organ and the piano, should be either in the balcony or to one side of the congregation.”
