Dr. Simon ChanSimon Chan, one of my favorite theologians, writes:

“Because worship is the defining practice of the church, it “provides the primary source for the nourishment of the Christian spiritual life.” Over time worship will have a deep and abiding effect on the practitioners. In worship we are doing something. We are reenacting the Christian Story, reliving its reality, imbibing its truth. There is a certain newness or freshness in the speaking and acting. We are not merely repeating some ideas from the past but are engaged in a “rubric” or pattern of actions of re-presenting them in the here and now.” – Liturgical Theology: The Church as Worshipping Community

How would you describe worship as a reenactment? What about worship is so transformative?

I’d love your thoughts!
