As a child she would play "Salvation Army" with her classmates, and at home she would gather a congregation with her dolls, giving them a sermon. Novels, though, made their way into the Methodist church library and with guilty delight, McPherson would read them. At the movies, she recognized some of her fellow Methodist church members.
Return to website homepage Weekly worship planning If you are responsible for planning or leading worship, this page has everything you need: We simply respond in prayer and praise to the God who comes down to our level. Why do we worship God formally?
Why do we have to go to church to worship? We need his word and his holy gifts no matter what, when or where. We can gather in lounge rooms, bars, parks and schools in all shapes and forms, and we do this around the country. We are also free to gather in the buildings we have built for the purpose of worship.
In our church buildings, we gladly receive all God does for us there. We are in fact, privileged to be welcomed and served by our living gracious God as the Spirit gathers us in his presence. Any worship gathering is a miracle.
God serves us and we respond in thanks and praise; in listening, proclaiming, singing and praying. The question is, why would any Christian want to miss out on what God does for us when we gather in worship?
Why do I worship in a congregation? I worship with my faith family, into which I am baptised. Why does God want to be worshipped? One of the things God wants of us is humility — and yet he wants to be worshipped.
How is that effective role modelling? For the most effective role modelling of how to be fully human and fully alive with the deepest humility, all we have to do is look to Jesus, the author and perfector of our faith. For all he has done and all he continues to do to resurrect dead sinners and give sight, life and freedom to captive people, there is only one appropriate response — to live a life worthy of the calling we have received from him to follow, love, pray, sing and listen to him above all others and all else.
We call that 'worship'. God wants me to worship him so that he can bless, feed, forgive, guide, refresh and restore me for everyday life. In worship, he has my full attention and that maximises his blessing potential on me and those who are with me.
God knows that worship together is good for us all. What are the essential elements of our Lutheran worship and why are they critical? The essential element of our worship is the presence of Jesus. Without his promise to be truly present wherever even a few of us gather in his name, we are just a gathering of like-minded people coming together for mutual support; like a community service club or fraternal group of colleagues.
What makes worship divine and spiritually alive is the reality that Jesus is present.The UAE is planning to build the largest institution in the region for training psychiatrists and mental health and anti-addiction professionals. The first prayer is written in a simple rhyming style and is a thanksgiving appropriate for children to say.
The second prayer thanks God for His presence and love, and asks for this revelation to take root in the believers life and "produce wonderful things".
