A Year of Worship. How is that even possible? That would be 8670 straight hours of worship. Have I lost my mind? Can you imagine how many songs we’d have to sing? Would the nursery workers still be showing up into the second month of our yearlong worship service? Would the guitarists play until their fingers were raw? Might a piano player be so tired that their face falls onto the keyboard during a 3 AM slot of worship? Or am I talking about something different than a 365 day worship service?
Yes. I am talking about spending the next year of messages on the topic of worship. But why do I think we need that at SVBC? Well, I shared last week about my own journey in growing and understanding of worship. I discovered only in my 20’s that worship services were different, people had different preferences and practices than the ones I grew up with. And that we all need to grow in our understanding of God so we can appropriately worship Him.
But there’s another reason why I think we need this series. I think we have been trained or influenced to ask a question of one another or to ourselves after every worship service we participate in. It’s the same question that we may ask one another after seeing a movie, or going to a concert or watching a play. Any guesses as to what this question might be?
