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 😉
