Worship is what we were created to do. It is central to the life of the church and the Christian disciple. Revitalizing your church's worship can bring new life to your congregation. Vital worship can occur in any style: traditional, contemporary, high church, gospel sings, contemplative, blended, ancient-future, and countless more. Vital worship happens when we use the best gifts and graces at our disposal to help ourselves and others live lives directed toward God. Worship should be about God and what God has done for us in Jesus Christ, through the power of the Holy Spirit. We encounter God's presence in the proclamation of God's Word and in the Holy Sacraments. The rest of worship is our thankful response to God.
