Sunday morning

I sort of got roped into going to ‘church’ today. My buddy Col needed another girl to sing for worship at Dalmeny Bible Church this morning and I happened to be around when his peer pressure skills kicked in (“Come on Kim, do it”) Well, that and I actually wanted to because it’s been a long time since I’ve been able to just hang out with someone and jam with a guitar and sing sing sing until I can scarecly sing anymore. So yes, “worship practice” was a really great time (ok, I won’t even get started on the whole concept of worship practice right now…) Anyway, I was at church this morning and as usual, it was an altogether mixed experience. Singing was awesome: I haven’t felt that close to God in a church worship music set in a really really long time. The sermon was….a sermon. I couldn’t pay attention. All I remember is the speaker talking about his flights from Texas to Saskatoon way back in the day when he was somewhat stranded switching flights in Chicago. Cool story…but I can’t remember how it was supposed to relate to something in the book of John at all. And there was a missionary couple going overseas to do door-to-door evangelism. This is through the same organization that I was with in Uganda….and had an altogether dreadful experience with, so I wasn’t to pumped to hear about someone else doing it. But hey, God can use anything right? He even used an institutional church to get to me today.

    I’d like to hear your thoughts on “worship practice”. I’m not sure if I would have as many problems now as I would have had a few years ago. I do find it difficult when the worship leader and the musicians are not in alignment (keeping in mind that I do understand that worship isn’t just singing).

    I find church a little bit difficult but I was thankful today because we had communion. I’ve never had communion messed up for me. I love it. I don’t like the premade bread sqares and the grape juice instead of wine but those things can’t get to me when it comes to communion. I don’t like that we aren’t really communing but that doesn’t seem to get to me either. I just really love communion and it always blesses me. Singing could by dry, the sermon could drone on but if there is communion, I’m always glad I came.

    I totally agree that it’s a necessity to practice the music you’re going to be playing….I just don’t like the fact that it’s called “worship practice”. Practicing how to worship? It just sounds off. Worship is more than music (and I know you see that), and it bugs me when it is narrowed down and put into a box that says, “music is worship, let’s practice how to worship.” I know I’m just being picky but….hey, I’m a whiny quasi-postmodern, I’m allowed…haha
