The World as Sacramental

The World as Sacramental

Central to Anglican worship is the belief that the world itself is sacramental. Anglicans believe that the world mediates God and that the worship of God both bears witness to this and, at its best, makes use of the totality of the human experience--the mind, the senses, the body, and feelings--to worship God. In Christ, God became flesh, connecting heaven to earth and earth to heaven. Anglican worship at its best, therefore, is earthy and real, beautiful and enticing, truthful and challenging, transforming and equipping.

The Diocese of New Westminster's outward manifestation of this committment is the ongoing support and funding of Salal and Cedar Watershed Discipleship.
