Observations of an American Presbyterian

I am not certain of all the reasons why a church gathers together every Sunday. But I was wounded and shamed when the other day an American Presbyterian, making observations about the churches he had visited since coming to England, pointed out how he thought that there was often too little attention paid to explicit God-centred worship in our services. His observation of some 'church-family' activities of a church in York, made me think particularly how often 'community' is a god worshipped alongside our Father in many churches including mine.

Lord God, remind us constantly that the real community, is only found in Christ; when you and not us are at the thing we long for and seek in our relationships.
