June 8, 2015: Contemplation Leads to Participation

Robert E. Webber

In the remembrance and anticipation of worship we are moved to contemplate God’s mighty deeds of salvation. By contemplating his person and work, we find our own true nature lifted up into a deeper and deeper consciousness of our restored self. . . . Contemplation leads to participation in God—seeing and living out our worship.
