Alan Peters explains:

Whenever Christian believers gather together to worship, they create the opportunity for a miracle to occur. Worshippers who have experienced this miracle describe it in a number of ways:

• “We all seemed to be thinking and feeling the same things.”

• “There was such closeness in the service.”

• “We felt such a spirit of unity while we worshipped.”

This miracle of corporate worship occurs when a spectrum of different individuals – dozens or even hundreds of them – come together and become one body, with a single mind and purpose. Each participant brings a special and unique cluster of life experiences, attitudes, knowledge, gifts and hopes, and then donates them to a common purpose: the praise of God.

Worship is not a presentation by a select few, but rather an activity and effort of the entire congregation. [Alan Peters, “Translating Liturgy into ‘The Work of the People,’” retrieved on January 19, 2009, from]
