circumstances beyond my control

Because of circumstances beyond my control, I’ve not been able to attend worship services during this holiday season – and I have missed it.

I am grateful that I am a member of a Worship Community.

Human beings were created to bless and adore their Creator and in the offering of worship to experience their highest joy and their deepest communion with one another.  In our fallenness we continually turn in on ourselves to seek fulfillment without self-offering . . . Worship makes costly demands on our time and energies.  It calls us from the inertia of self-centeredness.
