It happens. You spent time with a "haven’t-seen-you-in-a-long-time" friend and ... well ... nothing happened. In spite of your best intentions, you didn’t communicate, you didn’t connect. It’s not uncommon. People talk to each other every day, often without ever connecting meaningfully.
Then, sometimes, at some deeper level, you and another person touch. As hard as it is to put such a connection into words, you know it happened. You communicated with another soul.


Similarly, if believers are going to worship genuinely, we need to "connect" with God. Since worship is the communication between two lovers, we must make this connection. We don’t need any particular emotional charge, but we do need to connect with another person - a divine Person - in worship.
