What is worship, really? Is it when folks get together to sing? Does it involve ritual?
I’d like to think that the grandeur and glory of God has something to do with it. Worship is the affirmation of the Incarnational truth, Immanuel–God is with us. His presence envelops us. His holiness surrounds us. We celebrate his wonders and his works. Where does one find such worship?
I am teaching a class at my alma mater this Spring to explore these kinds of questions. It is entitled ‘History of Christian Worship.’ Any ideas from the neophytes?
