Kate Simmonds on Why the Church Exists

I loved this quote while listening to some teaching on worship from "Together on a Mission 2007";

"If the church is not regularly in the manifest Presence of God then we are missing our reason for being"

Emphasis on "manifest". Of course God is everywhere and omnipresent. But is He "manifest" in your church? And if He is manifest then what is He doing? Because let's face it - God won't be manifest and can't be manifest without people noticing. "Seeing and hearing" - the Bible calls it!
