We are one week into our five-week summer series of worshipping on Thursday afternoons in the park. We are one week into a five-week experiment.
When asked if they like to try new things, most people will say they do. It is easy for people to say, in the abstract, that trying new things is fun. That getting outside of comfort zones is fun. That taking risks is fun. But the reality is, often times saying and doing are two very different things. Often times, when it comes right down to it, most people prefer to do the same thing, over and over again.
That is why I am so grateful for this community’s willingness, and eagerness even, to try this worship experiment along with me. Getting outside of the church walls, worshipping in a new place on a new day at a new time – that is all huge. It is huge for a congregation to do this and I am excited we are doing it together. Thank you to those who are supporting our experiment and worshipping in a new way. For those who are still skeptical, I encourage you to give it a try.
After our five-week series, we will be back in our sanctuary on Sunday mornings as usual. And we will step back and evaluate how things in the park went. We will talk about what worked and what didn’t. We will talk about how it felt to step outside of our comfort zones, literally, and experience God in new places and ways. I, always, value and appreciate your feedback.
I look forward to see in you in the park on Thursday!!
