“It is proper and right to hymn you, to bless you, to praise you, to give thanks to you, and to worship you in every place of your dominion. For you, O God, are ineffable, inconceivable, invisible, incomprehensible, existing forever, forever the same, you and your only-begotten Son and your Holy Spirit. You brought us out of nothing into being, and when we had fallen away, you raised us up again.”
— From the anaphora of the Divine Liturgy
WORSHIP IN THE Orthodox Church is central to knowing God and coming to know ourselves. It is the ongoing intercourse between time and eternity, space and infinity, created and uncreated. It is the manifestation of divine beauty on the canvas of worldly chaos, and is the summit of the common, public human effort to reach for the divine. It is a defining act of the human race. We all worship something, even if we think we don’t.
