Raising of Incense ?

Hey everyone...

My local Coptic parish has "Raising of Incense " before Divine Liturgy on Sundays. What exactly is the "Raising of Incense"? Please excuse my ignorance....just wondering. Thanks! :)

Past posts reflect stages of my life before my baptism and may not be accurate expositions of Orthodox teaching. Also, I served as an Orthodox priest from 2008-2013, before resigning.
