Worship is a corporate endeavor…some kind of order is necessary so that everyone knows what is happening and is able to participate fully. People put themselves into something confidently only when they know what they are doing. Wherever there is interaction between people, ritual forms and ceremonies arise, whereby the bonds between them can be symbolically expressed.
