Misfits on a Mission, Finding Identity in Jesus

Worship Fully

This Advent, Roots is joining with hundreds of other congregations in conspiring against consumerism in our Christmas celebrations. The first theme of Advent Conspiracy is “Worship Fully.” In this sermon, Pastor T. C. explores the way we are formed by embodied practices. The apostle Paul teaches us to “offer our bodies as living sacrifices” to have our “minds renewed.” Every day in a thousand subtle ways we are being formed into individualistic consumers. Corporations don’t aim their ads primarily at our minds, they seek to capture our hearts. To worship fully this Advent, let us participate in holistic worship practices that focus our hearts and minds on Jesus. To do this we need one another. To worship fully, let us worship Jesus holistically together.
