July 15 Gathering: Why worship?


DSCN2900

There’s a story in the Old Testament where David, having just become king of all the tribes of Israel, has the ark of the covenant brought into the freshly-conquered city of Jerusalem. Along the way he offers sacrifices, and the writer of 2 Samuel offers a picture of David dancing in a linen ephod before the ark while music plays and people cheer.

It’s a picture of extravagant worship.

Which raises the question for us: what is worship? Why do we worship? And what are we really worshipping?

This week at New Wineskins we’ll have a discussion about different worship practices and talk about what a theology of worship looks like in our post-Christian era.

Join us this Sunday, July 15, in the 167 Side Room of the Marietta Brewing Company to share what you love and what challenges you in worship, and engage in conversation around this timeless topic.

Happy Half-Hour: 6:30pm

Conversation Begins: 7:00pm
