pondering words and photos on a Wednesday morning

first snow on old church steeple - October 2009

You all conduct worship as if worship was something that started last week.   You forget that we are part of the vast host of saints of those who have gone before and that even now that as we worship God; we worship God in the presence of that vast company of unseen believers who surround us and are clapping their hands as we sing the praises of God.   I have a great sense of the communion and fellowship between the church celestial and the church terrestrial.   And there’s nowhere in my Christian expression where that sense strikes me more forcibly than in Christian worship. 

(Albert Aymer,  from the transcript of a panel discussion at Calvin Symposium on Worship, 2006)
