Let us be the church

28 09 2007

Sally Morgenthaler is challenging her own work.  If you’re from Western Heights, I challenge you to take some time and read this article.  It’s important!

Worship is not an event. It is not evangelism strategy. It is not music. It is not surface-level entertainment. It is not staged.

Worship is a way of life.

We can no longer use our snazzy and entertaining worship services as excuses for our “efforts at evangelism.” We can no longer use the worship service as an excuse to not get our hands dirty.

Let us worship both in spirit and in truth. Let our worship call us to service. Let our service call us to worship.

And let us act as the people of God, the people of peace, the people of justice, the people of righteousness, the people of grace, the people of Christ.

God, forgive us of our many failures, and lead us into new life.
