What we embrace…
Worship encourages us to enjoy our humanity and community, recognizing we humans are part of a universal magnificence. (Animals get to worship with us too!) We get crucified in many ways – worship refreshes us with hope and resurrecting love!
Liturgy means the
“WORK OF THE PEOPLE!”
The deep affirmation that we are participants in God’s Beloved Community.
Worship/Rituals of Wisdom and Grace
Our worship on Sunday mornings is liturgical. That means we listen and respond to the wisdom of God’s unconditional love.
Liturgy leads us into the Cosmic Rhythm: the rotation of atoms, the circulation of our blood, the sap running through plants, the tides of the sea, the phases of the moon, the rotation of the stars and galaxies. That same rhythm flows through us; it’s the same song being sung with the whole universe. It is the cycle of seedtime and harvest, the cycle of life and death and resurrection. Human beings depend upon ritual and liturgical cycle for awareness and connection and freedom. The prayer and praise of worship are more important than oxygen!
The dramatic elements: music, tempo, words, art vary but we move through an ancient “order” that connects our hearts with the Mystery of Life.
