No, expressiveness in worship is more than a cultural issue. Kneeling, lifting hands, shouting, dancing, standing, singing, bowing, and more are all appropriate ways to demonstrate our passion for God. But someone may ask how this gets worked out in a local church where people are at different places in their experience, maturity, and understanding. Excellent question. That will be our topic next time.
