Eastertide Prayer and Worship.

GSL friend Rabbi Micah Greenstein of Temple Israel offered an energizing, insightful, and brilliant, presentation called “Leftover Easter, Leftover Passover” on April 24 in Trezevant Hall. Among several highlights about which I have been journaling, I appreciated his invitation for us, all people of faith, to consider what he described as a difference between prayer and worship. While one’s prayer life mostly is about time alone, need, and urgency, one’s worship life is about reverence and discipline in community with fellow pilgrims. In Eastertide (The Great 50 Days of Easter), Resurrection-believing communities like Grace-St. Luke’s are called to gather weekly and more, if possible, for shared covenantal experiences of common prayer, song, scripture, sacrament, formation, and fellowship. Life at GSL is abundant with in-person and online ways to feed and nurture our souls. In addition to offering our daily private prayers, let us practice Resurrection by worshipping God together and invite others to join us.
