Experiencing God in Rituals

On Sunday, I attempting to explain the different parts of our worship service and why we do them. It was a response to Isaiah’s challenge in the reading for the day. I hope it was helpful, but do apologize for the length of the service.

For those who were not present, the entire service was recorded so that you can listen to it in its entirety.


Isaiah 1:10–18 Wash and make yourselves clean; learn to do good and seek justice.

Luke 19:1–10 Zacchaeus, a tax collector, wants to see Jesus; Jesus visits his home.
