Ordinary Worship: Telling Our Stories

9-10 But you are the ones chosen by God, chosen for the high calling of priestly work, chosen to be a holy people, God's instruments to do his work and speak out for him, to tell others of the night-and-day difference he made for you—from nothing to something, from rejected to accepted.

11-12 Friends, this world is not your home, so don't make yourselves cozy in it. Don't indulge your ego at the expense of your soul. Live an exemplary life among the natives so that your actions will refute their prejudices. Then they'll be won over to God's side and be there to join in the celebration when he arrives.

13-17 Make the Master proud of you by being good citizens. Respect the authorities, whatever their level; they are God's emissaries for keeping order. It is God's will that by doing good, you might cure the ignorance of the fools who think you're a danger to society. Exercise your freedom by serving God, not by breaking the rules. Treat everyone you meet with dignity. Love your spiritual family. Revere God. Respect the government. 1 Peter 2:9-17 The Message

God’s Story is Told Here …

“Pity the poor atheist who feels grateful but has no one to thank.” - Anonymous

Pity the poor Christian who God is working through but has no one to tell.

Liturgy = a public work done for the community

“work of the people”

“I want liturgy to mean a careful storytelling that sacramentally sweeps us up as participants in the Story.”

Michelle Ferguson, “Anabaptist Liturgy” Direction Journal
