As we return to our church building for the first time in more than 17 months, we ponder the question: Why do we worship? Our new hymnal and worship resource, Voices Together, guides us through some of the foundational responses to that question. Firstly, we worship in order to be gathered as community. Summoned by the God who made us, we come home to God and to one another, finding (AND extending) belonging, welcome, transformation, liberation. However imperfectly: Welcome home, church…!
