Having completed our study of spiritual practices for now, it’s time for another topic to look at. I have been thinking of doing one on worship, more precisely, corporate worship; the worship assembly, Sunday worship… that sort of thing. Normally, I would put the verses of Scripture together, discuss them and the context in which they fall, and then tell you what I think about it.
But that’s what I always do. This time, I’d like you to tell me what you think.
Doesn’t that sound like a lot more fun?
Let’s set up a hypothetical: I’ll set the stage and then throw out some general thoughts and general questions, and you share your ideas with everyone else, and we’ll have a grand old ‘class discussion’ about worship− how does that sound?
Most people who read this are themselves bloggers, so you’ll see right away that this is a risky business, because the series becomes comment-driven. If there aren’t any comments, or only one or two, then our little experiment in blogging won’t last very long. Thus, if this is going to work, we need lots of comments.
Don’t worry, I have no plans to argue with anybody; I won’t reply telling you that you’re crazy or anything like that. Now I might say “Well sallylou76, that’s a really interesting thought. Did you happen to see what jimmyjohn23 said about that? Any thoughts?”
And of course, that means there must be a couple of rules: 1. Please be courteous and polite if you are responding to anyone else’s comment. 2. No profanity!”
OK, I know I didn’t need to tell any of you that, because my awesome readers never do either one of those things.
I think this could not only be a hoot, but very, very interesting because the readership here is quite diverse. We have Seminary professors, pastors/ministers/clergymen, seekers, housewives, professionals, retired, college students, many Christian backgrounds, and many nationalities and cultures represented, and my hope is that we all might pick up a thing or two we hadn’t thought about before.
And as always, you are free to make up your own mind.
So… are you in, would you like to give this a try and chime in to the conversation???
If so, click the “like” or drop me a comment. If not, don’t click the “like” and/or drop me a comment, but please don’t wait too long, I’ll be writing up the first episode tomorrow morning when I’ll be writing up the hypothetical…
