 Worship is the coolest part of the week.  We have the privilege of hearing our God speak to us through His word, reminding us that his take on things  is the real take, causing us to question and questions again our natural understanding of what is going on around us.  Worship is also cool because we there's a bunch of us experiencing this at the same time. 

Last night we brought in the new year with our brothers and sisters at First Evangelical Athens Greece. We ate together, then worshipped together at about 11 p.m.  We were asked to sing a couple hymns in front of the whole congregation (about 250 people) and on the last stanza of Come Thou Fount,  they sing in Greek and we sang in English.  Super cool. 
We're excited to worship with them again today.  We'll meet with the pastors and get oriented for the week.  I'll try to update you throughout the week.
