If it is true for Muslims, isn’t it true for Christians?

This past Sunday I preached about corporate worship. (I don’t mean the worship of corporations, but worshiping together with others) I chose not to approach it from the angle of being requiredor commanded, but rather stressing the benefits, the need, the value of worshiping together.

It turns out the Federal Bureau of Prisons agrees with me; there is power in worshiping together. John Walker Lindh, well known a decade ago as a young American convert to Islam who went to Afghanistan and joined the Taliban, is part of a group suing the Federal Bureau of Prisons for the right to pray together. They are allegedly allowed to gather, to talk politics, football, etc., but not to pray.

I told you there is power in gathering for worship and prayer!
