Corporate worship on Sunday morning is something that I look forward to each week. For the community, it’s a special time when we are all praising God together through song. Not everyone in the church is a great singer but that’s not what matters – its our attitude; God looks at the heart.
Sometimes, I hear people talking to each other and it’s very tempting to be bothered by the chatter. Sometimes I wonder, “Do they not like the song?” or “Do they realize they might be disrupting others?” Other times, I’m glad its happening.
This week, as we were singing Refiner’s Fire my 5 year leaned over and asked, “What does desire mean?” This launched us into a short, but great conversation about what desire means and what our one main desire should be. I’m not sure if we disturbed anyone around us, nor am I that concerned – this is what worship is about. Because of the conversation both my son and I were able to draw a little closer to God.
So, do you think conversations should happen while we’re singing?
Should children be in the main worship service?
