Christian worship is our affirmative, transforming response to the self- revelation of God. . . . We are not seeking to find or to know an obscure, frightening being who needs to be placated. God makes and continues to make the first move, showing himself in power and in love, inviting our response. In fact, worship is any and every affirmative response to God.
—Don Hustad, in Jubilate II: Church Music in Worship and Renewal
