First Century Worship

First Century Worship

Twenty-first century worship does not look like first century worship.  C.S. Lewis said, “The perfect church service would be one we were almost unaware of; our attention would have been on God” (Letters to Malcom: Chiefly on Prayer, Glasgow: Collins & Sons, 1964, 6).  Paul told Timothy to guard the deposit of faith given (1 Tim. 6:20).

Oxford: The Fingerprint of God

The Oxford Report
 
As the oldest university in the English-speaking world, Oxford has a mystic atmosphere.  There is no clear date of a beginning, however, it existed in some form in 1096, and developed swiftly from 1167, when Henry II banned English students from attending the University of Paris.

Four Tassels, Rockets

Four Tassels

“You shall make tassels (Heb. gadil, twisted thread, or tassel) on the four corners (Heb. kanaf, plural – kanafot) of the garment with which you cover yourself” (Deut. 22:12).

This is the command to wear a prayer shawl (Heb. tallit).  Immediately following the commandment of the tallit, the Torah states, “I the LORD am your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt to be your God” (Numb.15:41), thus, linking this commandment to the Exodus.
