Worship is probably the most important thing we do as a church. It is far more than merely the style of music we use or don't use, the type of prayer we use (spontaneous or written, individual or corporate) and other issues. So, what is worship? Is how we worship the issue? Are the materials we use the issue? Formal or informal? In my understanding worship is to be focussed on God. God is both the subject and the object of our worship. Worship is not for us to "feel good" or to "receive a blessing." Worship exists for us to bless God. That should be our standard. Now to the question of style and "cultural relativity." These are open to debate. I am more comfortable in a more traditional leaning toward "liturgical" style of worship. I've worshipped God in many environments from a Catholic Mass to a very free Pentecostal service and met an worshipped God there. The main question is not how, when, where, etc. but WHO! What are your thoughts?
