To participate in liturgy is to participate in theology. It is to think God’s thoughts after Him. It is to hear His call and to respond in community with His gathered body. It is to participate in Kingdom life.

Worship/Liturgy should call the mind and heart up to the heights of heaven and thus humble and overwhelm the creature with the majesty and incomprehensibility of our blessed God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Theology always comes out of conflict. It is borne/born out of gritty/unwashed life. It is developed in the “trenches”. Theology developed apart from true experience should always be suspect. Thus is the incarnational and historical essence of the Christian Faith. The word of God is to be lived, not simply contemplated. All is worship. All is sacred.
Theology borne not out of conflict has no lasting quality. It is simplistic. It is essentially sophistry. Theology of this nature is not necessarily suspect as to it’s objective proportional truth value (though this may often be the case), but certainly to it subjectively being known and truly embraced.
