White on a Definition of Corporate Worship

Today's Worship Quote is another definition of corporate worship, this time by the contemporary Methodist theologian James F. White. Here he stresses the human purpose in worship:

Called from the world, we come together, deliberately seeking to approach reality at its deepest level by encountering God in and through Jesus Christ and by responding to this awareness.

- James F. White, Introduction to Christian Worship, (Abingdon Press, 1980), as quoted in Don Hustad's Jubilate II: Church Music in Worship and Renewal, (Hope, 1993).


Reality at its deepest level! Responding to an awareness of God! How can we so often take worship so lightly?

Have a great week!
