Ship of Orthodoxy

Good stuff from Jeff Meyers: “One value of a thoughtfully considered liturgy is that it enforces the idea that we are worshiping as the church, not as individuals or home groups. We are the Ship of Orthodoxy, not 350 separate rafts in a lagoon. The priesthood of all believers does not mean we don’t need the help of anyone else to worship; rather, it means that we all help one another approach the Lord through prayer, singing, hearing, and feeding at his Table.”
