Sunday Worship Observations

Things which raised my eyebrow this morning in worship:

  1. The gospel of Mark begins in the wilderness with John the Baptist who is firing off like a roman candle exploding for a moment then burning out quickly.
  2. We listen to John the Baptist like we listen to flight attendants who give us life saving information about safety belts and exits.
  3. The was a young kid, Max, who had a plastic alligator on his head while he took communion.
  4. A little girl said to her dad while at the Communion rail just before we gave her communion, "I don't know what or understand." - Which I thought was amazingly honest response to communion.
  5. Who are we? (self-identify)
  6. Who is God calling us to be? (purpose)
  7. Who is our neighbor? (context)
