In one sense, all of life is meant to be worship, whether we are in church or not. It flows out of our personal knowledge and love of the God who created us, knows us, loves us and calls us by name. Worship is both our duty and our joy, the exuberant praise of the Psalmist expresses the delight of coming into God’s presence.
Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
…..Worship the Lord with gladness;
…..come before him with joyful songs.
Know that the Lord is God.
…..It is he who made us, and we are his;
…..we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
Enter his gates with thanksgiving
…..and his courts with praise;
…..give thanks to him and praise his name.
For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
…..his faithfulness continues through all generations.
In both our parishes we try to offer the best worship we can, acknowledging that we have a lot to learn this side of heaven. There are different formats of worship through the month and every day begins with morning prayer at Saltwood Church.
