What is the nature of worship and why do we do it? This is a question prompted in Earl Davis by a (somewhat cynical) answer from an evangelical minister friend, who quipped that Sunday service was only entertainment. Davis lands on the fact that, despite its wondrous beauty and our natural seeking for truth, that there remain deep mysteries in the world. The purpose of worship is to feed this sense in our individual and community selves.
