The Architecture of Worship
Rev. Chandler Stokes
This Sunday in worship: The order of worship takes us from Preparing to Hear the Word, like Mary and Joseph traveling to Bethlehem to prepare for the coming of the Word—it takes us from there to our Going out to Be the Church, the Word made flesh in the world. Worship is a retelling of the story of the Incarnation. And because Jesus becomes flesh first as a child and also later bids us welcome children, there is an element of this story that always involves our understanding Christ's welcome to children. Join us as we explore these mysteries together.
