Worship Service and Mexican Food

A thought occurred to me as I was preparing Bible class last week that worship services are a lot like Mexican food, there are only 5 ingredients…the only different is in how they are arranged.

  1. And no matter how they are combined, these elements seem to give some members indigestion ….

    Matt you crack me up!

  3. And why are there 5 and only 5 elements of worship? There is no passage in the NT that lists 5 – so how has it been decided that there are 5 and only 5?

      Why do people take jokes and make theological points out of them? Oh wait…that is what preaching is supposed to do. 😉

      To your point, how about #6 – The renewing of your mind (Rom 12:1-2)?

      • After I spoke at a lectureship many years ago, someone asked me if I believed meditation was a sixth item of worship. I replied that I thought it might even be the only item of worship.

        Actually, this post is a good observation! The only thing is there may be a few more than 5 “ingredients” of worship (as there are actually more than 5 ingredients of Mexican food).
