The Worship Quote of the Week for (06/09/1998):

Worship Is Alive
Today's quote is another from a short and wonderful book on worship by Milburn
Price and Gary Furr.

Christian worship is alive because, in its essence, it is a conversation
between two living realities-the one true, eternal God and the body of Christ,
the church. Because worship is a conversation and not a mere review of the
past, it is dynamic, unpredictable, and open-ended. Who knows what might
transpire on any given day when a group of believers hears and responds to the
Word of God!

-- Gary A. Furr and Milburn Price in THE DIALOGUE OF WORSHIP: CREATING SPACE
FOR REVELATION AND RESPONSE, Smyth & Helwys, 1998, p. 89.

[I highly recommend this book to pastors, church musicians and anyone who
plans, leads, or participates in worship in a local church-available from the
publisher at 1-800-747-3016.]

Have a great week,
Chip Stam
