Why do we worship?

..
……To quote Lutheran Bishop Abraham Allende,
 .
“Going to worship has only one good purpose in mind: so that God might meet us here, and surprise us, love us, forgive us, and sustain us.”
.
…….We worship not because God needs our worship, but because we need to worship God. We need to set ourselves before God not as creators, but as creatures of God’s good creation. Through worship we are gathered together as the body, fed and nourished by God’s Word and at God’s table, and sent out again into God’s work in this world.
 .
…….It is our deepest joy that God would see fit to love and nourish this motley group of sinners!
