Saturday/Sunday worship is a significant practice within the Christian community. Even though the aspects and structure of the worship service varies between each domination they all expresses and acknowledge the beliefs and values of Christianity and is a time for communal worship. Saturday/Sunday worship was founded within the Jewish practice in honouring the Sabbath and was originally practiced on Saturday. However, as Christianity expanded into the Hellenic work and become immersed in Roman society it changed to Sunday, as some wished to distanced themselves from the Jewish community. LINK
Christian worship services have a common structure. This includes introduction rites, Liturgy of the Word and Eucharist, Eucharistic Pray, Holy Communion and Post-communion. However, each denomination will have worship services which vary. Catholics have mass performed by an ordained male priest, Orthodox have Divine Liturgy performed by an ordained male priest and protestants have mass that may be performed by either an ordained male or female priest. However, the common aspect of their services is that they provide adherents with the opportunity to connect with god, to reflect personally and on ethical direction, but also to feel a sense of community.
During the worship services the belief of the humanity and divinity of Jesus Christ is expressed. Through the Liturgy of the Word, which are biblical reading from the Psalms, The New Testament and Gospels the life, healing and miracles performed by Jesus Christ are revealed. This allows adherents to learn the history and appreciate the pain and suffering that Jesus had experienced so that humanity could survive. Furthermore, through the Word and confirm the Christian belief that all things existed in and through God as “through him, all things were made, without him nothing was made that has been made”. This highlights that…...

Sunday

...Sunday in the Park The text ”Sunday in the Park” mainly deals with the concerns of marriage, the individual roles of the partners in the relationship, and how you can be together for a long time, without noticing that some of the vital values are missing, from the person you love. I believe the characters in this text are victims of this very thing, where the mother realizes that her husband can't defend her in the way that she wants him to. She probably married him to feel safe and secure in a way, possibly financially since you have no knowledge of her actually having a job herself. In the park however, she wants her husband, Morton, to stand up for her and her son, even though she isn't a supporter of violence and knows that it'll end up with Morton getting hurt quite badly if he does stand up for them. As a result, she takes on the role of the family “guardian” since her husband proves too weak for it. You can see that in this last bit of the story: “But her voice stopped him. She was shocked to hear it, thin and cold and penetrating with contempt. “Indeed?” she heard herself say. “You and who else?” (P. 2, lines 139-141)” This shows how she basically mimics the menacing man in the park, who she more or less must see as a “real man,” compared to husband at least. Those two men seem like a clash between two social standings/classes, Morton being a rather smart middle class guy and the other man probably working class with a not-so-long education. I say this......

Hard to Buy on Sundays

...Hard to Buy on Sundays Melissa Jaronik English 111-86B October 9, 2012 Final Paper 2 Prohibition ended in 1933, yet seventy-nine years later consumers in Indiana are still affected by its continuing impact. Indiana is one of just three states that do not allow Sunday carry out sales of beer, wine, and liquor. Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, and Kentucky are all benefiting of this law. The tax revenue generated to the states surrounding Indiana should be going to the state of Indiana. The ban of the sale of carry out alcohol on Sunday’s should be lifted in Indiana because, the year is 2012 and religious views should not be dictating consumers lives, thousands of dollars of tax revenue can be gained, it will increase sales to small businesses, and it would also make football fans happy to not have to rush on Saturdays to get their beer before Sunday. Hoosiers should be allowed to buy any form of alcohol and any amount of alcohol on Sundays. It is important to understand the meaning of why laws like banning liquor and beer sales on Sunday are put into effect. Indiana is one of many states that maintain a ban on Sunday liquor sales, even though Sunday sales of alcohol could bring in much needed revenues to the state. Sunday closing laws, often referred to as “blue laws,” generally proscribe all labor, business and other commercial activities on Sunday. These laws prohibit activities ranging from racing motor vehicles and dogs, hunting, operating pawnbrokers,......

Worship

...Worship What is Worship? By definition, worship is ascribing worth to something or someone. But true worship is also a matter of the heart. It must be felt. It can't be ritualistic. It can't be just an external going through the motions. True worship is a heartfelt expression of love, adoration, admiration, fascination, wonder, and celebration. It's something that happens in your heart and soul when you begin to praise God for who He is and thank Him for what He has done. Worship is what empowers followers of Jesus to live faithfully in the world. In worship our minds take in wisdom, our hearts are moved, and our whole beings are called to live out the gospel. People have worshiped, and praised God since the beginning of time. One of the best stories of worship towards God is noted in Isaiah 6, “ In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord seated on a throne, high and exalted, and the train of his robe filled the temple. Above him were seraphs, each with six wings: With two wings they covered their faces, with two they covered their feet, and with two they were flying. And they were calling to one another: "Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory." At the sound of their voices the doorposts and thresholds shook and the temple was filled with smoke (v.1–4).”  Worship brings an upward look, with one glance at God on His throne with all of His glory. It pulls our attentions off our idols and puts them back of to our God. It reminds...

Worship

...What is Worship? Consider the meaning of the word. The English word worship is derived from an older Anglo-Saxon word weorthship which meant "to honor." Christian worship, whether individual or corporate, offers honor to God. Worship can and should characterize our daily life, we offer praise, adoration, and thanksgiving. As ministers through music, we must get out of the way and let God do his thing through us. Do we always get out of his way? No. We fail often and have to remind ourselves of just who our Audience is (i.e., God). But God is faithful! He has been drawing the church into his presence through worship for two millennia (not to mention the tabernacle & temple before that). God’s people have approached him over that time in numerous ways. Worship music is important to our worship experience as the Church body, and throughout history. John 4:24 “God is a Spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.”     • For us to worship God in spirit and in truth we must make sure we obey all of His commandments as given by Him in the Bible on how He is to be worshipped.     • We must speak where the Bible speaks and be silent where the Bible is silent.     • As we sing, pray, give, partake of the communion, and as the gospel sermon is preached, it must be done according to God’s instructions in the Bible. The purpose of our worship is to glorify, honor, praise, exalt, and please God.  Our worship must show our adoration and......

Black Saturday

...Samoan tradition and fa'a Samoa. The Mau included women who supported the national organisation through leadership and organisation as well as taking part in marches. Supporters wore a Mau uniform of a navy blue lavalava with a white stripe which was later banned by the colonial administration. The Mau movement culminated on 28 December 1929 in the streets of the capital Apia, when the New Zealand military police fired on processions who were attempting to prevent the arrest of one of their members. The day became known as Black Saturday. Up to 11 Samoans were killed, including Mau leader and high chief Tupua Tamasese Lealofi III with many others wounded. One New Zealand constable was clubbed to death by protesters The Mau movement eventually led to the political independence of Samoa in 1962. http://rdln.wordpress.com/2011/08/28/samoa-what-new-zealand-did/ http://meleasianpacific.weebly.com/samoa.html http://www.samoafood.com/2012/06/black-saturday-hiding-in-bush-and.html Website http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lod4JoPLqmU YouTube Clip http://www.samoa2012.co.nz/samoa2012resources/ ...

Bloody Sunday

...Introduction 1.1. Bloody Sunday Sunday the 27th of January 1972 became known as the Bloody Sunday. This Sunday represents a very important point in the history of the partition of Ireland and the relationship between England and Northern Ireland. 14 people had been shot and another 13 wounded by British soldiers during a protest in the northern Irish city Derry for civil rights and against the British occupation policy on this very Sunday. The Events that took place on Bloody Sunday had been the initial phase for the conflict in Northern Ireland to escalate. As a result, the conflict got worse. Shortly after the declaration of the happenings in Derry, an enraged crowd of northern Irish citizens occupied the British Embassy in Dublin and burned it down. To simplify the enormous amount of the subject matter “Ireland”, in the following lesson, there is going to be a didactical cutback. To begin with, the students are supposed to get to know some basic facts about the divided Ireland. In this one lesson, it is not about representing the topic in all of its details. To a greater degree, it is about approaching the topic particularly with regard to war and peace. The children shall know, what happened on Bloody Sunday and they should be able to classify the events into the historical-cultural background.1 1.2.

Worship Observation

...Worship Observation Paper Assignment Sheet THRS 2105 Spring During the semester, you must attend/observe one service of Jewish worship and present your observations in a five page paper. (If you regularly attend a Jewish worship service, you should visit a different denomination.) A list of synagogues of various denominations will be posted on line. You are welcome to visit a synagogue outside the list as long as you check in with me first. There are three components to the assignment. 1) Preparation Once you have decided what synagogue you will visit, you are expected to do a minimal amount of basic research on the historical background of the denomination, the worship style, its institutional organization and its place in the American religious scene. You may also want to do some research into the specific synagogue’s community you plan to visit, especially if it is of historic interest. Many religious denominations (and many individual synagogues) have web pages with helpful information. This preparation is important as it will help make your visit more comfortable and will enable you to get more out of the experience. Your finished paper should include a brief (one and a half to two pages) introduction to the tradition. Keep in mind that you must cite in a footnote or endnote all sources which you quote or paraphrase, as well as works to which you refer or from which you have culled information.

Worship

...1 “Worship” Mary Willis PAST_6013C Robby Pearson 2 As I read Whitney’s chapter pertaining to worship, I began to reflect on the past couple of weeks and my time of worship with God. There are different reasons to worship; however, there are the two main reasons are we are called to worship by God. In Matthew 4:10, Jesus is obedient to the Old Testament command “Worship the Lord your God” (80). The second most important reason to worship is to appreciate at the one who saves us from our sins. It is a privilege to worship our Lord. We were called, and we must obey. Psalm 95:6 represents how worshiping is a privileged duty, “Come, let us bow down and worship, let us kneel before the LORD our Maker” (80). In definition, it is highly difficult to define the word worship because there are so many different meanings related to the word; however, according to Whitney the word worship means “God is to ascribe the proper worth to God, to magnify His worthiness of praise, or better, to approach and address God as He is worthy (81).” This definition encompasses the true meaning of worship. I believe in today’s society, speaking from experience, we are too caught up in the cycle of life to appreciate God’s blessings in life. I have fallen short of this many of times. Often my excuse is I am too busy to stop to look at the beauty in His creation or stop and reflect on His work in my life. The more we invest into our creator, the more we see how worthy He is to us. There are......

Worship

...Midterm Essay To say that worship is solely what just happened in the worship service is a failure to give worship its full meaning. Romans 12:1 says that, “ Therefore brothers, I urge you, in view of God’s mercy, live your lives as a pleasing and holy sacrifice to God, that is your spiritual act of worship.” Though the verse does not give a clear detail on what worship is, it also dictates that worship expands to so much more than the Sunday morning service and the contents of the service. Throughout the Bible, there is a constant theme of God reaching down to His people, and in some way or another, rescuing His people. For example, He rescued His people from slavery and from the wrath of the pharaoh in Exodus, thus solidifying the promise of making the Israelites His people. When God rescued His people and brought them to the promised land, He gave them a set of laws, a way to live that responds to Him in a way that is pleasing to Him. The two foci of worship focuses on these points, the initiative God takes to reach His people, and the response of the people to God. When God rescue His people and when He gave them His word, He did something very unique, He formed a covenant with His people, choosing them to be His. For Israel’s part, they obeyed and lived according the to will of God. These ways to live became the book of the covenant, becoming the laws and lifestyles of God’s people. From here Israel’s worship began to shaped after God’s character, meeting and......

Worship Manual

...WORSHIP MANUAL by David C. Stone Third edition (May 1998) Revised (October 1998) © 1998 David C. Stone. All rights reserved. This document is very much a continuing effort. It is an attempt to express a theology and philosophy of corporate worship that is becoming increasingly prevalent in churches across both denominational and international borders. This third edition contains greatly expanded content in chapter 1 (The Meaning of Worship) and some additional material in chapter 2 (Corporate Worship). This includes corrections, additional references and a short Bible survey that fills in some of the background material to the text. The first revision finally includes the material on the Tabernacle (section 2.5) and the beginnings of a study on the history of worship (chapter 3, incomplete), as well as some minor section renumbering. I still fully intend to add a chapter on leading worship, but I got a little sidetracked!

Worship

...Worship, Courage, and Fear “Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.” Hebrews 4:16 “Sing with your head up, with your eyes closed; not because you love the song, but because you love to sing.” – Aaron Marsh. It is so very easy to be swept away by sound, smell, sight, and taste. It is so very convenient to let the music worship for us, and it is so common to only worship when we feel swept away. It takes much more courage to maintain a spirit of worship, regardless of what we hear, smell, see, or taste. We maintain this spirit of worship when we don’t like the music that’s being played, and we worship God anyway. We maintain this spirit of worship in the monotonous, gray periods of life, when nothing seems to sweep us away. We maintain this spirit of worship in the bitter cold, in the pools of blood, and in the wells of despair that inevitably come alongside the extraordinary joys and miracles of love. Along with the courage of discipline, is the courage to overcome fear in worship. The fear that we’re not worthy to approach God, and the fear that he won’t accept us if we do… the fear that God only lovingly sweeps us away now and then, and that he isn’t present in the terrible or the terribly mundane… and the fear that God is the one who causes or allows unspeakable pain to occur in our lives. There’s also the fear of public worship, which is actually the fear of......
