"What people revere, they resemble, either for ruin or restoration." - G.K. Beale
The God who calls us to himself is infinitely glorious. Because of this, we do our best to approach him in a way which shows our humility. One way in which we show our humility is through following a liturgy connected with all of God's children. When we join to worship God, everyone has a part! We join our voices with one another, and with every Christian. Our worship is connected with the whole church, those living and those dead. By following a traditional structure of worship—which includes a call to worship, confession of sin, responsive readings, etc.—we’re joining in the words and habits used by Christians throughout time (in history) and space (around the world).
