Why We Gather

“We feel such joy to have God’s Spirit rising up in our lives that we can’t be silent. We sing our deep joy and longing, sometimes through the ancient psalms and also through spiritual songs that spring up in our hearts. The more we praise God, the less we fear or are intimidated by the powers of this world. And so we praise and worship God boldly joyfully, reverently, and freely, and we aren’t quiet or shy about it.” We Make the Road by Walking (185)
