(Photo courtesy of Randi Anglin). I met someone for lunch yesterday. Among other things, he asked me about my philosophy of worship. He had a good reason to ask it, but it seems to be a strange question now that I see it in print. After all, worship isn’t philosophical and hardly hinges on any rambling that may come out of my mouth. … I told my new friend that it is important that worship be authentic. It needs to be honest. I also said that the purpose of worship is not to warm-up the audience for the preacher nor attract this or that demographic. We worship Him because we’re at the end of ourselves. We worship to be transformed.
