Worship Interrupts Politics

Ian Clausen, a doctoral student studying with Oliver O'Donovan at Edinburgh, has a good reflection on the way that worship situates our interaction with the world and reminds the world that it is not alone, starting with this quote from Bernd Wannenwetsch:
Worship again and again interrupts the course of the world. Through worship the Christian community testifies that the world is not on its own. And this also means that it [the world] is not kept alive by politics, as the business of politics, which knows no sabbath, would have us believe.
