Worship is not for the purpose of remembering the Reformation, hailing the founding of America, saluting mothers, boy scouts, girl scouts, or grandparents. Worship does not celebrate Independence Day, Memorial Day, or Labor Day. No. Worship remembers the birth, life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ… . All that goes into an actual service of worship must pertain to the event of God revealing Himself to us, becoming incarnate in our history, and redeeming us from the power of the evil one, setting us free to enjoy Him forever.
