Worship

Worship  

We feed our bodies, and so, too, must we feed our souls for their perpetual state of hunger and thirst. We gather for public worship to hear God’s promises and to eat and drink sacrament, not out of obligation but out of eagerness. Disciples worship in order to be fed in anticipation of and preparation for daily work out in God’s world. Just as a poorly prepared and constituted meal does not satisfy the body, neither does poorly prepared and constituted worship satisfy the soul.

 What is God up to? 
God created people to worship God. Yet, worship is not for God’s sake, worship is for people’s sake. When people worship, people do well; God doesn’t do well. God is perfect and holy and complete whether we worship or not. We, on the other hand, are not complete unless we worship because we were created to worship.

What are we up to? 
Making worship a meaningful experience for people—especially the un-, pre- and de-churched—so that they might know communion with God.
