Very true, the entire service, whether Daily Office, Eucharist or other
should be worship.

My pet peeve, organists or guitarists who play very loud. Mostly the
congregation just stops singning.

Something manyof us seem to forget.

definition of "worship". I see it a more fitting concept that worship
is the attitude of a person from which emerges everything one does. Or
to put it as One more qualified than I, it is the attitude reflected in
"You shall love the Lord your God with all your mind and all your heart
and all your soul, and your neighbor as yourself". That, to me is worship.
The Daily Office, and the Eucharist are very small parts of that for
most of us.
