We began to roll out the web site for First UMC Burlington today (umcburlington.com). We are homing in on the three statements that define who we are as a Christian Church. First of all, we are “A Worshiping Community”. What does it mean to “worship”? And what makes a “Worship Service” meaningful to you?
Zach Hoag shared a quote from N. T. Wright on Worship (Worth-Ship). Rachel described worship as the experience of being “re-charged”. Adam said worship can happen anywhere for him – but especially when there is music involved. Mark dug into the Greek word used most often in the Christian Testament that is translated with the English word “worship”. The word is προσκυνέω (proskuneo).
God is “high and lifted up”. God is also here – among us and within us.
What are the most meaningful experiences you have had in worship?
