Come And See

Psalm 8:3 – When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you have established…

There is so much more that we could do to use sight to enhance our praise and proclamation. Some churches are now experimenting with dance and movement as part of the service. We have had dance used here to express the power of the Lord's Prayer, and we have had dance to express the joy of life with the children in worship. While the focus of most church pews is still toward the pulpit, I love churches whose pews are in the round or semi-round, so that we are reminded not just of God, but of God's presence with and among us. I almost accepted a call to a church in Montreal based partly on my love of the architecture of the building that had everyone focus on the table which was directly below a colourful skylight. The atmosphere and message were 'perfect' for worship.

Prayer: God, help us to see you in the beauty that surrounds us — in the majesty of a place of worship, in the beauty of a ballet, in the image of the Christ in a neighbour or friend. Amen.
