Worship and material things

‘Liturgy is always embodied in material things’

The above phrase from ‘Transforming Worship’, a Liturgical Commission Report para 2.6, echoes St John of Damascus (675-749) when he insists that:

‘I do not worship matter, I worship the God of matter, who became matter for my sake, and deigned to inhabit matter, who worked out my salvation through matter.’

Considering the corporate worship of your church in what different ways is the liturgy embodied in material things?
