Worship

We visited a fascinating church on Sunday. One must be careful selecting a church when travelling. We're boring Presbyterians, and strange things turn us on: expository preaching, reverence, dialogical worship. Within our denomination there is little consistency in worship. You could find videos on the jumbotron, Batman and Robin in the pulpit, God knows what.

Charlie makes the call because he knows the city. The church is impressive; they're big - huge, even. I mean, their new building has buttresses for heaven's sake. Neo-gothic; billion dollar pipe organ; a hill overlooking the city. Worship was serious, music was thoughtful, sermon was biblical.

Not one person spoke to us.

Sad. Encouraged that the sermon was biblical, though!
