I love how in Near Eastern Christianity there is a sense of active worship. The whole body is involved in worship and they love to create places of beauty that speak and resound within people. It creates an experience separate and set apart from ordinary life. While I believe that God can be worshiped any where and that quiet and simple mediation and learning is important, I am intrigued by the Eastern way of worship as well. I’d love to bring elements of a more active way of worship into my life.
