What worship is about

May 19, 2008

Worship is not about meeting the needs of the congregation members. It’s about making a witness before the world of what we believe is true.”1
-Ed Phillips, associate professor of the practice of Christian worship at Duke Divinity School, on the subject of churches that offer a range of religious services in order to appeal to a broader base, quoted in The Dallas Morning News and Duke Magazine
