What it means to worship in the Christian faith and what it does to uplift them spiritually What is worship? Worship is giving worth to someone or something, genuine worship is a wholehearted expression of wonder, adoration, love, admiration, celebration, and fascination. It is a great feeling that occurs in your soul as you start to worship God for his love and appreciate him for all he has done. Most Christians today do not know the relevance of worship, true worship is more than singing, lifting hands, bowing heads, closing eyes, and smiling towards heaven. Worship is what connects the physical to the spiritual.
I remembered doing one of Paul’s letters, 1st Timothy as a Bible study for one my class assignment at CFOT. 1st Timothy spoke about Grace, instruction on worship, leaders within the church and a good servant of Christ. I felt like 1st Timothy chapter three is a decent place to start. This book has the foundation and elements the Corps people needed to remind them of when they first fell in Love with the Lord. More so, if some of them did not know the Lord, it will help them to entrust their lives to the Lord.

In Harry’s gullible, youthful, curiosity, attaching to the emotional connection to his baby sister and the priest longing for the hope and truth. He is given a youth book for learning the ideology of the religion Christianity. He is taught the holy ceremony of baptism and how it changes the person’s connection with the holy spirit.
The book also mentions how celebrations allow us to learn from others and from the men and women of the past whose insights are embedded in the traditional elements of celebrating (Cooke pg41). The liturgy for certain from the beginning readings was focused on remembering what the Lord started and throughout remembering the different events that changed the world. Also, the whole service was a celebration for certain, celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. As the book mentions the men and women of the past it made me realize that for centuries people have been celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The role of the priest was there to be our guide, he spoke of how people celebrate all over the world and how the world is most united during the Easter Vigil.
When seeing a doctor or when at a mormon hospital they believe in divine healing “laying of the hands” by the church elders. Anointing with oil for healing is also another belief of theirs. They try to stay away from medicines with alcohol and caffeine. Specific Traditions- The Mormons fast on every first Sunday of each month. Endowment(washing and cleansing of the body or baptism) is a big tradition used by the Mormon faith.
The first side of the ethical issue in this case deals with individuals who identify with or accept Christian values. They believe that Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ whom they believe is the savior of the world. For that reason they routinely include Christian symbols and phrases into any decorations they put up for the holiday. Many feel it is their right, and some would argue it is their duty to do so. This is mainly due to the fact that Christians are taught they must not be ashamed of what they believe and they must tell others about their beliefs.

I was the youngest ordain deacon
Show Them God’s Love: The adage, “they won’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care” exemplifies this point. To truly wow kids in your VBS, you must show them God’s love. Show them your church cares about them. Make it obvious that you care about them as a person, not as a name on a roll. When you do this successfully, kids will feel welcomed and loved, which will lead them to come back again and again.
Although it is taught in christianity that god will hear you when you pray to him no matter where you are, some individuals may feel a strengthened connection to God when they choose to pray or reflect on their own lives inside a church as opposed to somewhere else such as a workplace or home environment. Relevance of the sacred space to the community A sacred space can play an integral role in community direction and development. A sacred space allows a community to come together to express their need of spiritual nourishment. The sacred space of the church can help an individual connect to a place of belonging, and this bolonging is what creates a community.
