There are many reasons we come to worship. We come to hold up our highest values. We come to confront life’s biggest questions in fellowship with each other, seeking what James Luther Adams called “intimacy and ultimacy.” But also we come simply to love, to feel and express the love and gratitude we have for the mystery of life. In this service we’ll celebrate devotional worship.
