In the consumer-oriented world of today it's tempting to think about worship in terms of what we can "get out of it" rather than what we can "bring to God," but the truth is that both things are important. On one hand worship is meant to feed, inspire, comfort, strengthen and challenge us so that we can go back out into the world equipped to be God's hands and feet in the world. On the other, worship is meant to give thanks and praise to God, drawing us out of ourselves into the divine mystery and using our gifts to God's glory. At St. Christopher's many gifts are used to God's glory. Some wear vestments and serve up front, some work on Saturday to get ready for Sunday, some sing, greet, or just show up to worship - keeping us faithful to the original Greek meaning of the word "liturgy" - the work of the people.
