Jim’s home! Back home at his WordPress site that is… churning out more of those spurring posts that are for everyone not donning a set of itching ears. His most recent challenge was a call to invest in a book by Glenn Packiam titled, “Discover the Mystery of Faith.”
As if I needed to be challenged while engaged in my personal endeavor to read everything ever written.
In chapter four of this work, the author attends a service in an Eastern Orthodox Church. That he is moved by the service is revealed in his words, “Joining this liturgy that Sunday reminded us that ‘church’ did not begin when we arrived; the worshipping people of God is an ongoing drama. We joined a program that was already in progress. Sitting on the floor was a way of communicating: we are all on level ground. Your comfort can take a backseat for a few hours. There is only One who is seated on a throne. …everything spoke. And it told a story. And the story was of Christ and His salvation.”
Mr. Packiam’s message for the reader is this, “the way we worship becomes the way we believe.” You can read all that Jim has to say on this book here, and it is available at Amazon for the very good price of just three bucks (Kindle).
