You are what you love.  But you might not love what you think.

The world we live in is filled with rival stories of what human flourishing looks like and how it might be attained.  These stories inform cultural practices which are fundamentally liturgical. Every day we are being taught to love different things, to love rival gods instead of the One for whom we were made.

Christian worship is therefore vital for our re-formation as the “imagination station” which embeds us in the story of God’s dealings with his Creation and “re-stor(i)es” us.

As we worship together as Christians, God meets us and recalibrates our hearts toward him so that our cultural endeavors(our work, our families, our education, our everything) can be pointed towards God and his kingdom.

This is why corporate worship must be at the very center of the Christian life, forming us and discipling us to be more like Christ.  

This book encourages a high view of corporate worship and gratitude for the sometimes alien-feeling traditions passed down through the centuries.
