Temple's Definition of Worship

The famous Anglican archbishop William Temple provided an outstanding definition of worship:

Worship is

the quickening of the conscience by the holiness of God,
the feeding of the mind by the truth of God,
the purging of the imagination by the beauty of God,
the opening of the heart to the love of God,
and the devotion of the will to the purpose of God.
