The Church I am part of generally tries to be all inclusive and not to frighten anyone, and be cool. Does a pretty good job at that. Today, there were a few changes, noticable to me anyway, some of which are not usually seen in this Pentecostal Church.
Randomly … in a building otherwise devoid of religious symbols, there is a 20ft+ tall wooden cross on the platform that was erected on Good Friday and is staying there until the end of June, nailed to the cross are bundles of Easter prayer requests … we had Communion on consecutive weekends … we sang ‘How Great Thou Art’ … there was the gentle aroma of insence in the air … at the end of the sermon the pastor talked about repentance, saying sorry and asking for forgiveness for sin … sin is death.
As always, everything was all about Jesus. Beautiful!
