True Worship

"This disparity between economics and justice is an issue of worship. According to the narrative of Scripture, the very heart of how we show and distinguish true worship from false worship is apparent in how we respond to the poor, the oppressed, the neglected and the forgotten."

-Mark Labberton serves as pastor of First Presbyterian Church of Berkeley, California, and the author of The Dangerous Act of Worship—Living God’s Call to Justice (IVP, 2007).

Can't wait to read this book, Arloa! God has been slowly showing me that to follow him means to have deep concern for the poor--deep enough, anyway, to lead us to action. the challenge is in determining which actions to take.
hope your hiking was wonderful.
