"oh the wait was so worth it"
"Wimber described the worship event as a relational process with several stages, each of which draws the believer closer to the Father's heart. Consider the analogy of a husband and wife preparing for intimacy. They do not immediately rush into the bedroom; they take time to draw close to one another. One meaning of the Greek word for worship, poskuneo, is 'to turn toward to kiss.' Psalm 2:12 calls us to 'kiss the Son, lest he be angry.' A flowing pattern of worship, with smooth transitions between a number of songs uninterrupted by announcements and solos, prepares us to 'kiss,' to express our most tender affection to, our Lord." -Doug Banister
