Thinking about… worship

“Worship is the submission of all our nature to God.

It is the quickening of conscience by His holiness;

the nourishment of mind with His truth;

the purifying of imagination by His beauty;

the opening of the heart to His love;

the surrender of will to His purpose and all this gathered up in adoration,

the most selfless emotion of which our nature is capable and,

therefore, the chief remedy for that self-centeredness,

which is our original sin and the source of all actual sin.”

 William Temple
