a physical form of worship

My school offers a concentrated class during January, and I am currently taking a health and personal fitness class. One thing that the professor said to the class today struck me as being applicable to ASL as well as personal health.

The professor said that spiritual acts of worship are physical. In other words, when we worship God, we use our physical bodies to translate that worship in an audible or, in the case of ASL, a visible, way.

Although the professor’s intention was to remind the class that taking good care of one’s physical body is in itself an act of worship, I also found her statement to be a very inspirational one as I continue to learn sign language.
