GenXers and Millenials would rather be in service than in the worship service.
So why not bring the worship into service?
The word “worship” comes from the Old English weorth+scipe. It is, literally, the ship or vehicle that brings, creates, ordains and appoints worth to God.
Name, claim and reframe every generous act of giving as worship. Pull out the wine and bread in the middle of the food line, the Habitat project, the car wash.
Watch the worship service grow and your "frame of reverence" grow with it.
