Worship Has a Societal Purpose


Ray Waddle understands…

Churchgoers don’t get much credit and don’t ask for it. Worship isn’t glamorous. But it has long been a plank in the search for an ethical life — a way to be accountable to God and to earth-bound neighbor. It encouraged modest living and friendships across ideological divides. It inoculated against paranoia, extremist individualism and dispirited daily headlines.
