Some readers may be interested in this recollection of Christmas Eve worship past.
Whether or not worship says much about God, it always says a lot about us.
Part of the Women’s Center’s mission is to remind its readers and visitors of that, to ask what our worship reveals about our deeply-held beliefs about women (e.g., do we believe women are capable of leading worship? valued partners in worship? present in worship? . . .), and to practice worship that embodies an understanding of the full equality and dignity of women.
Even limited and limiting worship may provide a way — in some places and times, one of the few ways — for us to encounter the God who seeks to encounter us. That experience (we affirm) is fundamentally positive.
It’s what inspires the conviction that the struggle to reform and transform worship, to bring it more in line with its ultimate possibilities, is worth undertaking.
