What is worship?

A convergence comes up in many places in science and math, but could it also describe worship?

In math a convergence is when to lines come together at a common point. Imagine the top of the steeple in the image above. the two sides of the steeple converge at the top where the cross is typically mounted. In science a convergence is when two distinct objects (like animals or plants) begin to adopt to take on the characteristics of each other, some give and some take. And finally in technology, a convergence occurs when you can bring together unique and distinct pieces of tech to form a single new object like a phone a camera and a computer combining to create your iPhone or Galaxy phone.

In a sense we have been convergent in our worship. We have brought together some distinct styles of songs, some unique sounds and voices and have brought them together to create one new voice at our church.

At Evanston Avenue Baptist we are very intentional in bringing together great old hymns with a modern new sound. In a sense we have been convergent in our worship. We have brought together some distinct styles of songs, some unique sounds and voices and have brought them together to create one new voice at our church. As we bring the depth of the old hymns with a modern sound and sing new songs that sound like old hymns, we hope to bring our voices together to worship Jesus as a new whole. The important thing to remember is that even though we may come from different angles, as long as our center and our focus is on Jesus and not on ourselves and each other then we will come together and bring Glory to God.
