S1:E4 Worship – Putting God at the center

Bishop Curry teaches about how regular worship can both help us to deny self-interest as the main aim of life and also re-center our lives on God.

It can sometimes be hard to worship regularly. With competing priorities, everyday stresses, and our otherwise busy lives, we might ask, “Why should I have to go somewhere else in order to worship a God who’s all around me?”

In this episode, Bishop Curry teaches about how regular worship can both help us to deny self-interest as the main aim of life and also re-center our lives on God.

Hosts Kyle and Sandy discuss how what we do in worship – whether that involves incense and bells or whispered prayers and guitars – forms and changes us. As we gather with our neighbors, we are called out of ourselves, placed in community, pointed toward God, and reminded of the mystery at the heart of creation. We are made one body: the body of Christ sent forth into the world.
