Worship Has Its Reasons by Earl F. Palmer, senior pastor of University Presbyterian Church, Seattle, WA.  He is the author of numerous books and articles.  Palmer writes, "What is worship for a Christian? It is the coming together of the grand themes of discipleship in which we  bow before the Lord who has first stooped down to find us.  In worship we bring our real selves before God and claim his love in Jesus Christ.  Because of this claim worship is confessional both in our admission of our sins and our confession of God's redeeming love." Jul/Aug 1998 Theology Matters p. 9
