Understanding that worship in the church has evolved over many generations is one key to living in the freedom God offers each of us. Knowing that the order in which we worship has been passed down and has changed over time gives us freedom to do the same. Knowing that some parts of the order never change connects us all the way back to the earliest of God’s people. When we dance and sing for joy in worship we know that Miriam did the same. When we pray we know that the desert mothers and fathers prayed throughout the day. Richard Rohr (a monk in the Franciscan tradition) writes that “A good journey begins with knowing where we are and being willing to go somewhere else.” How might that be true for you this week as you consider taking your next step toward God?
