Many congregations use a word rooted in medieval Saxon England (around 1200 AD): Weordschipe ... an act of trade. You offer something to God. If he finds it acceptable, then you become temporarily "worthy". Over time, the act of weordschipe became another word: Worship. It gets used a great deal these days, and yet it lacks both Christian sensibility and Reformation understanding when it comes to the real relationship between God and us. It inadequately reflects what truly happens when we gather for Sabbath.
At Trinity we use a different, older word - Liturgy. Exactly how many people does it take to give thanks and praise, to proclaim the story, to keep feasts and seasons in beautiful ways? The early Christian community had a simple answer - it takes everyone. Liturgy means "the People's work". It takes as many of us as there are.
