In case you’re wondering what all of the hoo haa (is that a real word?) is about regarding our First Wednesday gathering last week, all I can say is that YOU MISSED IT. 🙂 Ok, that’s not cool… I won’t do that to you…

We did something really, really different Wednesday night. 95% of the service was done in complete silence. The focus was on getting quiet in our lives and taking the time to meditate and focus on scripture away from the distractions of life that we are so often bombarded with.

After a few minutes of acoustic worship we watched a great video featuring Rob Bell (which was mostly silent) and then spent about 20 or 30 minutes watching scriptures flash up on the big screens and journaling what we felt like God was saying to us through them. It was really a unique time (and very good for me personally).

We ended the night with communion (yes, in silence) and had a prayer (led in silence) and went home (most of us in silence.)

If anything, I hope that the worship experience that night moves all of us into a more regular habit of silent scripture meditation and just LISTENING to God more.

See you Sunday! It’s going to be another great weekend!
