Visualize an hourglass set on its side. At the very center, the waist of the hourglass, is worship. On the left, everything that one does in life, work and leisure, moves toward the center, worship. On the right, everything that one does in life, work and leisure is empowered by worship. In this vision of life, our worship stands at the center and gives shape to all that we do. Worship, then, is not only the public acts we do as a gathered community, but our very way of day-to-day life.
