Worship: Walk in Love
Sunday after Sunday, in Episcopal churches across the world, people gather to worship together. As part of the Holy Eucharist, one of the verses that we often hear week after week is, “Walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself for us, an offering and sacrifice to God.”
This verse is used in the offertory sentence, which comes just as the people’s offerings are collected, and is a way of pointing people toward the sacrament of Holy Eucharist that we are about to receive. We are encouraged to make connections between our Sunday prayers and our daily lives. One way to strengthen these connections is to choose to learn more about our tradition as Episcopalians and particularly how The Book of Common Prayer reflects our beliefs and shapes our lives.
