Toward an Integrated Liturgy of Work and Worship (Matthew Kaemingk)

There is a deep division between work and worship in the West. However, the worship of the ancient Israelites integrated the sanctuary into the streets. What are ways that our work today (even sending emails) can be celebrated and offered to God as a form of worship?

Matthew Kaemingk explains how the tasks we do every single day can be integrated into our worship and daily liturgy.
