Worship as conversation – podcast


This is an image of an icon by an artist called Rublev. It depicts the Trinity, the family of God, sharing a meal at a table. The side of the table that we view the image from is empty, as if we are invited to come and share in fellowship with them.

In fact, it isn’t ‘as if we are invited‘ – we are. We are drawn and welcomed into this worth-giving, dignity-assuring, value-establishing communion. It is the first act in the movement of worship – where God gives us worth.

A few weeks ago, we released the album in Auckland at St Columba Presbyterian. As part of the service, I had a conversation with the pastor, Andrew Norton about the nature of worship from this perspective. You can hear it here or download it as a podcast here.

If you’re in a rush, you can watch the 90 second youtube version, but its kinda cheating 😉

    Made some room to listen to this this tonight, Malcolm. I’m glad I did. It frames much of my christian walk, where I’ve come from and where I’m going. Thanks for making it available – much to dwell upon… he accepts anything because he demands nothing… that’s out-rageous! That’s what it means when the psalmist says his heart swells or bursts with praise.

    ps Listened to your album on the couch the other night, so tired I fell asleep at track 4 and woke up at track 12!

    • Thanks for this Adrian, I like your connection with the Psalmists sense of being overwhelmed by gratitude. There is wonder in here for us if we, as you did, make time to consider and receive it.
