Anything that is not worship*
is really not worth doing.
On the other hand,
only what is now worth-doing*
is, in fact, real worship.

* Note: This reflection is based on
analysis of the meaning of
the Anglo-Saxon root
in the author's journal
dated 1 September 1969
and published here for the first time.
