WWW: Wrestling With Worship

Yesterday, in a message I shared a quote from Mark Labberton’s book The Dangerous Act of Worship: Living God’s Call to Justice, “Jesus was and is awake. He came to make a world of those who are awake – awake to God, to each other and to the world. Waking up is the dangerous act of worship because worship is meant to produce lives fully attentive to reality as God sees it, and that’s more than most of us want to deal with. Yes, true worship always questions the dominant paradigms, even those within the church. It asks whether we are bowing before reality or falsehood, before God or idols.” (19-20)

I continue to wrestle with worship in light of how we minimize it and put God in our boxes.

  1. we try… hard to put God into a box… meanwhile God is the most out-of-the-box thinker there has ever been.we’re simply too ignorant and self-centered to grasp that… that it’s not our hand on the joystick.
