Worship as a Subversive Act

Worship as a subversive act! It looks antinomic (to put it mildly). For David Ensign (minister at Clarendon Presbyterian Church, a community progressive, inclusive, diverse), such a radical approach raises some very basic questions: what does worship mean? what needs to be subverted? what does it mean to act? if worship changes us, what in us needs to be changed, to be subverted?

And David goes on: art has power to subvert, too (and that's why authorities, be them political or religious, target artists). I think that for us humans art is as as fundamental a need as worship is. And our most fundamental expressions cannot be but subversive.
