Worship as an Encounter with God

The United Methodist Book of Worship contains the following statement:

Our worship in both its diversity and its unity is an encounter with the living God through the risen Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit. — The United Methodist Book of Worship.

The idea of worship as a place to encounter the living God really resonates with me. I would love to hear about the times you have had an encounter with the living God in worship. Such information would be a valuable guide to the planning of future worship service, please let me know.
