Symbols and Worship

Our modern world values simple, scientific objectivity. We love to watch reality television, Food Network, or ESPN. In this modern age we’ve lost touch of the artistic and dramatic. We’ve lost our appreciation for expressing feelings and intuition symbolically. 

Could we reclaim this in our lives and in our worship? 

I have written a post for Pinelake's Reservoir Campus website. I've been studying about the history of worship lately, and I've realized I don't respect the symbols of worship as much as I should. Check out the post for more.

Speaking of studying, I have started working on a Masters Degree and will be tied up for the next two weeks writing two lengthy papers. I will be posting shorter pieces and links to other sites during this time.
