Yesterday, in church, I noticed something!
First I have to tell you our air conditioning unit no longer works, it not only doesn’t work it can’t be fixed. It was going to cost somewhere around $250,000 for a new unit. Suddenly a new unit was available for around $150,000 because the company who ordered it is no longer in business. (Now don’t hold me to the exact details, my personality can’t deal with exactness) If you know what I mean. God is good to us, another whole study could be done on is He good to the company who went bankrupt. We will save that for another time.
So Lincoln, Nebraska–July–summer–spells warm no hot no very hot. We have moved our church services to Heartland Hall, the new addition we added a couple of years ago.
Here is where the buzzzzzzzz comes in, in this less formal setting people are talking, they are visiting, they are warm and friendly. They turn their chairs around and visit with their neighbor. It was thrilling to watch as my church came alive with fellowship. It brings tears to my eyes when I think of how formal and dignified we must feel in the sanctuary, so much so that we can’t chat, laugh and be friendly.
I am praying that when we move back into the sanctuary we will somehow take this new found freedom with us.
