what worship is about

Back in 1996 when I was exploring the Episcopal Church I visited St. Bede’s in Menlo Park. They had this printed in their worship folder:

quoteWe realize that navigating our forms of worship may be challenging for those unfamiliar with worship in the Episcopal Church…

A suggestion which may be helpful would be to consider that you are entering into a conversation between God and the faithful which began centuries before we were here and which will continue long after we are gone.

Just join in as you are — bearing with us as we are — and we will all be changed as we go!

I think that was key in helping me continue my Episcopal quest, and I still love it today.

I believe worship is richer when we stay aware of that thought.
