Sunday the 12th our Senior Highs are going to lead worship and share their experiences on the Mission Trip we took to Appalachia.
When we first met to plan the service, they had lots of stories they wanted to tell, and pictures to show; but very little idea what would make this worship. I reminded them that we weren't giving a report at school. And they know that they need to do something different than just "show and tell". But it's hard for them to know what that is.
It was a reminder to me that worship doesn't come naturally, and that, as a church, we need to help each other learn what's expected. Expected by God. In my opinion, our expectations are way too low to be a good guide.
