WORSHIP IS

Archbishop of Canterbury Worship is not about singing. Hopefully we say that enough. Worship is the act of revolving one's life around God. We use singing as a means to the bigger ends of worship. One of our favorite reminders of this comes from the Archbishop of Canterbury from around 100 years ago. 

“Worship is the submission of all our nature to God.

It is the quickening of conscience by His holiness;
the nourishment of mind with His truth;
the purifying of imagination by His Beauty;
the opening of the heart to His love;
the surrender of will to His purpose
– and all of this gathered up in adoration,
the most selfless emotion of which our nature is capable
and therefore the chief remedy for that self-centeredness
which is our original sin and the source of all actual sin."

-William Temple (1881-1944), Archbishop of Canterbury
