Why Do We Worship as a Community?

I tend to think of me, myself and I.

And I suspect that many of us are like that.  We are Americans who are independent.  We are lone rangers out there on the range.  We are rocks who whether the storm.  Or at least that is the way many of us think.  Now, we can discuss whether that is valid or if no man is an island, but…

what about worship?

Why do we come together to worship as a faith community?  Is there something that comes out of coming together to worship as a group instead of at home as individuals?  Glen Pakiam presents the basic idea of the invitation in worship and that none of us are alone.  We are all apart of the community of the saints who have gone before and those all over the world.  It is in worship that we are reminded of this:  you are not alone.
