I think many modern American Christians understand the importance of novelty - and there is importance to novelty, "sing a new song" - I mean, there is importance to novelty. But they don't understand the importance of repetition.And at 17:19:
Our children, now, they want to hear the same stories again and again. When we're on our death beds, we're not singing a brand new song, usually - we're singing a hymn that we've known from childhood or early in life.
American evangelicals are pretty bad at understanding the importance of repetition. [source]
I repeat things a lot here, my congregation is very tolerant. I repeat the same wedding sermon at every wedding.We use the same vows, we use Calvin's vows from Geneva. I use basically Cranmer's form for the Lord's Supper. And I've done the exact same thing for fifteen years here. [source]I can actually testify to that bit about Cranmer as I actually attended a worship service at his church once.
