Simon Sinek became famous following his excellent book ‘Start with Why?’ For those of us long involved with the church we forget, or perhaps have never considered, why we do what we do when we gather. Our current series on ‘Worshipping Together’ is an opportunity for us to reflect on the components of our Sunday gatherings and to embrace them afresh. However, it is also an opportunity for those new to faith or exploring faith in Jesus to learn why. So for example this week we are considering why we always have a reading from the Psalm and why we do it antiphonally.
We welcomed two men into the Christian faith yesterday. So, for these men starting with ‘Why?’ is a good thing. As any new Christian or unchurched person begins to grow their trust in Jesus they will also be growing in relationship with His people, the church family. Understanding why we do what we do when we gather together on a Sunday is helpful?
What questions do you have about why we do what we do on Sundays?
