Feb 25, 2019: Worship Is a Verb

Robert E. Webber

Let’s define congregational participation as worship that involves the action of everyone simultaneously. But it seems to me that congregational action cannot occur without two very basic ingredients: the congregation must understand what they are doing, and they must intend to make the responses that are part of worship. Worship is a verb.
