"Certainly we can worship in solidarity." September 22, 2014 Brian LePort Certainly we can worship in solidarity. Some of our richest moments of worship will come while strolling on a beach or wandering in a garden or perched on a mountain peak. What we must not do is deliberately exclude others from our worship or worship selectively with like-minded friends....Maturity develops in worship as we develop in friendship with the friends of God, not just our preferred friends. Worship shapes us not only individually but as a community, a church. If we are going to grow up into Christ we have to do it in the company of everyone who is responding to the call of God. Whether we happen to like them or not has nothing to do with it. — Eugene Peterson, Practice Resurrection, Kindle Locations 434-439.
