Did you know. . .
Burning of incense has always been largely an esoteric and oral tradition evolving in relation to both religion and medicine.
The forms taken by incense use have changed with advances in technology, differences in the underlying culture, and diversity in the reasons for burning it.
There has been a move among Protestant churches, including United Methodists to recover more multi-sensory ways of worship. This is in keeping with a growing recognition that people have multiple ways of learning and praying. Worship that is oriented to the intellect or to the emotions, both interior, leaves out those who engage in prayer through vision, smell, touch, movement, etc. We are increasingly aware that people are formed in faith when practices become embedded in memory, nerves, muscles and bone through sensory engagement.
