Worship – Praise and Thanksgiving


Today a new series starts called “Worship: What’s the Big Deal”. The next few messages by Transitional Pastor Dan leads us to the prophet Isaiah’s writings in Isaiah 6 to consider an incredible vision that radically changed Isaiah’s perspective of God. A.W. Tozer wrote, “God stands apart from all others in light unapproachable. He is as high above an archangel as above a caterpillar, for the gulf that separates the archangel from the caterpillar is but finite, while the gulf between God and the archangel is infinite.”
