In the spirit of Whole Life Worship and in light of current elections, we thought it was worth hearing some wisdom from Andy Flannagan on a healthy relationship between worship and politics. Andy is Exective Director of Christians in Politics and a highly experienced worship leader and songwriter.

In this short interview he tells stories of leading worship in political contexts, and encourages us to be prophetic as well as pastoral in how we create and lead worship.

Below are some links that Andy mentions, and resources for leading gathered worship which engage with political issues, especially during elections.
