    Goddess worship/spirituality in contemporary society has re-emerged at a very poignant time. The thousands of years of social and religious devaluation have been placed upon women by patriarchal systems.

Reverence for the Goddess is older than current mainstream religions, and interest has re-emerged for many reasons.

    When examining the theology of worship and praise, the bible says that communication, scriptural lyrics, and music will help churches evangelize and disciple congregants.

Communication between the worshiper and God is an integral part of worship. “But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and…

    For Joe Horness contemporary music-driven worship is a style presented in the language of this generation. This view is often seen as a rebellion against traditional worship. Horness disagrees with this idea and argues the contemporary style builds upon the foundation laid by tradition. The point of this style is to connect people with God.

I think I had an easier time understanding the religion and the ritualistic practices because it was a physical source which you could worship, while Christian don’t really have a symbol with in nature.
