With all the different worship styles from which we have to choose today, I am glad that Jesus made worship simple. First, wherever two or three are gathered in His name, He is with us. Second, those who worship the Father must do so in Spirit and truth. But believers need to worship together; no lone rangers. The disciples were together in one accord in the Spirit and the apostles' doctrine.
The United Methodist Church has emphasized 'open hearts, open minds and open doors' for many years now. Like many phases, it can mean anything until defined. How about let's have open hearts to God, open minds to God's word, and open doors to all who seek the worship in Spirit and truth.
May we gather together in Jesus name? - Rev. Ben Herlong
