A Very Different Perspective on Worship

From Eugene Peterson's "A Long Obedience in the Same Direction" (book about discipleship):

"An excellent way to test people's values is to observe what we do when we don't have to do anything, how we spend our leisure time, how we spend our extra money. Even in a time when church attendance is not considered to be on the upswing in the United States, the numbers are impressive. There are more people at worship on any given Sunday, for instance, than are at all the football games or on the golf links or fishing or taking walks in the woods. Worship is the single most popular act in this land."

Now there's a different perspective....
